Cooper Notification’s Wheelock Exceder LED Series produces high-fidelity sound output for indoor wall-mount applications where intelligible voice is required. The LED speaker has a frequency response from 300 to 8000 Hz, and the speaker strobes have intelligible messages in a clear, crisp tone. They also have tone signaling for emergency communications, mass notifications, and voice evacuation. The wider frequency range allows the speaker to reproduce frequencies closer to the original sound, which improves the clarity and comprehension of the intended message. Other features include dual voltage (25/70 VRMS) for faster installation, five field-selectable tap settings (1/8 to 2 W), four field-selectable candela settings, and mounting options for new and retrofit construction.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
