PV support mounts
Mounting system for photovoltaic commercial rooftop applications
Cooper B-Line has announced the ARISTA Mounting System for solar photovoltaic (PV) commercial rooftop applications. The system is the company’s first available stocked solar PV mounting system, designed to meet budgetary and installation requirements. Constructed of standard, pre-assembled electrical components, the ARISTA system’s lightweight frames provide durable support for solar PV panels, effectively angling panels from 5 to 35 degrees at 5-degree increments for maximum performance.
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.
