Lighting Control Relays Bring Added Durability to Coordinated Area Lighting Applications.
With the rugged design of its components and enclosures, Trinetics Lighting Control Relays provide durable options for coordinated area lighting. The cost associated with servicing individual photocells is eliminated, resulting in improved efficiency and a more aesthetically pleasing area coverage. Trinetics offers an extensive line of RCOC products including:
RLY Series – A compact, inexpensive control relay is designed for “tight fit” applications.
MR Series – This electromagnetic design series features high compression low audible noise, minimum eddy current heating, and offers a wide range of flexibility and performance for applications.
MTR Series – Primarily features maintenance-free, hermetically sealed mercury tube contactors that eliminate contactor wear issues and concerns
Lighting Control Centers – For situations where multiple breaker protected lighting circuits are required.
Group Lighting Control – Features a single RCOC Relay combined with a Trinetics oil or vacuum switch to provide primary side control of one or more transformers in wide area lighting circuit applications.
The Trinetics RCOC controls provide a true zero leakage current physical connection break when in the manual open>position, and serve as a visual and physical safety isolation point when lighting circuit maintenance is required.
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.
