POY Finalist: Interruptible inverter
Finalist in Lighting in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The LiteGear inverter is designed to provide a maximum of 250 VA of emergency power to indoor and outdoor lighting fixtures for up to 90 minutes. The LG2 interruptible inverter easily handles larger emergency lighting load requirements in indoor office areas and long outdoor walkways, including LED, incandescent, linear fluorescent, and compact fluorescent lamps.
The heavy-duty steel enclosure features a white powder coat finish and is designed for indoor surface wall-mounting installation. The LG2 may be mounted up to 1,000 ft away from indoor or outdoor connected loads.
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.
