Lighting for comprehensive energy management
Schneider Electric introduces LPS Standalone relay panel
Schneider Electric’s LPS Standalone panel is the base offering in a line of lighting control relay panels. Its time scheduler reduces energy consumption by automatically shutting off lights in response to a scheduled event, and its multigroup relay assignment capabilities and multiple input combinations offer highly flexible lighting sequences. The LPB BACnet panel is designed to provide control and compatibility with existing building management systems utilizing the BACnet protocol. Leveraging the BACnet open protocol, the panel creates a standardized communication solution, allowing facility and operational managers to manage all functions from one system. The LPL LonWorks panel solution offers a facility or operational manager maximum flexibility necessary to optimize and manage the full scale of lighting controls inside their buildings. It offers control of other facility devices for medium and large feature-rich building applications, specifically seeking to control energy costs with an open standard building management system.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
