Monitor HVAC/R systems remotely
System monitor provides energy managers and facility managers with instant access to energy and HVAC/R systems data via the Internet.
System monitor provides energy managers and facility managers with instant access to energy and HVAC/R systems data via the Internet. The system combines data logging hardware with built-in GSM cellular communications and HOBOlink, a Web-enabled software platform that allows users to access current and historical data, set alarm notifications and relay activations, and manage and control monitoring systems. The system measures temperature, gauge and differential pressure, relative humidity, kW, kWh, AC voltage, AC amps, DC amps, and CO 2 . The system’s alarm capabilities enable users to set up alarm conditions for any connected sensors and receive automatic notification via email or cell phone text messages when monitored conditions exceed user-defined limits.

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.
