Motors meet EPAct requirements
Standard-E motors have efficiencies raised to meet EPAct requirements.
Standard-E motors have efficiencies raised to meet EPAct requirements. In addition, temperature rise is lower than present motors for longer life, they are balanced to half of the allowable NEMA vibration limit to run quieter, torques exceed NEMA limits, and low starting currents allow the use of smaller starters.

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.
