LED stairwell fixture
The stairwell LED fixture by Lutron features a LED driver
Lutron Electronics has announced LED models for its stairwell fixture family. The stairwell LED fixture features a Lutron LED driver and control and communicates wirelessly with Lutron Radio Powr Savr wireless sensors to save more than 90% lighting electricity as a retrofit solution in most stairwell applications. The fixtures are preprogrammed to occupied and unoccupied light levels. To meet specific project code requirements, the user can adjust these presets. The solution’s design features separate fixture and sensor components, which allow for the flexibility to determine appropriate occupancy sensor quantities, mounting configuration, and placement requirements based on the stairwell design.
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.
