Multiple bus load and generator control software
Emerson Network Power's ASCO Multiple Bus Load and Generator Control can operate up to eight independent multiple buses simultaneously as well as 16 gensets and 128 loads.
The ASCO Multiple Bus Load and Generator Control software by Emerson Network Power makes it possible for a single programmable logic controller (PLC) in ASCO generator paralleling switchgear to reliably operate up to eight independent multiple buses simultaneously with full, feature-rich functionality. In addition, when multiple buses are part of a 3-phase, complex tie breaker connected ring, the ASCO Multiple Bus Load and Generator Control software offers the flexibility to operate any combination of the buses as a single system, or separately when they're disconnected, again with full functionality. ASCO Multiple Bus Load and Generator Control software drives a PLC in the master section of the lineup. It controls up to 16 gensets and 128 loads spread across up to eight buses. It is suitable for both standard and mission critical applications, and low- and medium-voltage systems.

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.
