Proteon LED high bay
Acuity Brands offers the PROTEON LED high bay for indoor ambient lighting.
Acuity Brands has expanded its LED indoor ambient lighting portfolio with the launch of the PROTEON LED high bay from Lithonia Lighting. The PROTEON luminaire can replace high intensity discharge (HID), fluorescent, and induction high bay fixtures in manufacturing, warehousing, cold storage, commercial, retail, and other large indoor spaces. The PROTEON LED high bay is for indoor spaces with mounting heights ranging from 15- to 40-ft and ambient temperatures between -4 and 131 F. Using a robust aluminum extruded heat sink, the fixture provides superior thermal management to reduce operating temperatures. Featuring focus, narrow, wide, and spread distributions, the PROTEON LED luminaire meets both horizontal and vertical light level requirements as determined by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES). The product comes standard with a semi-diffuse lens to reduce glare. For additional glare control, a highly diffused lens is available.

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.
