The Lev-Lok line of illuminated receptacles has been expanded with the addition of Decora Illuminated Duplex Receptacles. The illuminated face makes it easy to identify energized receptacles in both light and dark conditions, making them ideal for use on emergency circuits. These devices satisfy National Electrical Code requirements while confirming power to the receptacle. The Lev-Lok Modular Wiring Device System speeds the installation, providing for faster, safer installation both during construction as well as at device change-out. Other features include a nickel-plated brass, single-piece wrap-around mounting strap, and a green LED illuminated blade slot for easy power indication.
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.
