Power quality meters
Emerson Network Power’s ASCO 5400 Series Power Quality Meters can capture present complete data on sags, swells, and other events no matter how small.
Emerson Network Power’s ASCO 5400 Series Power Quality Meters can capture every event that occurs in on-site power systems, no matter how fast or small. Continuous, high-speed wave form recording and transient harmonic displays are what enable the ASCO Power Quality Meters to capture and present complete data on sags, swells, and other events. The meters also track and store data on time-of-day energy consumption, flicker, crest, and K-factor. They aggregate and synchronize events from multiple meters to the millisecond with ITIC1 compliance curves. Continuous wave form recording eliminates setting thresholds, triggers, and events. ASCO Power Quality Meters generate automated reports for prescheduled periods and provide compliance testing to parameters in accordance with EN50160 and IEC 61000-4-15/IEC 61000-4-30. During power outages, a 25-second power ride-through provides uninterrupted data recording. ASCO Power Quality Meters can capture data from gen-sets, utility mains, power transfer switches, UPSs, paralleling gear, TVSS, PDUs, and critical power distribution boards.

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.
