Mass notification system
Usable both indoors and outside, the SpectrAlert mass notification system (MNS) by System Sensor meets the always-evolving MNS codes and requirements. Equipped with amber lens and speaker strobes, as well as ALERT-printed devices, the SpectrAlert informs occupants both visually and auditory of an emergency. The MNS also includes field-adjustable settings, universal mounting plates, and plug-in designs.
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.
