These relay controls are available for installation in a wide range of commercial environments, including new construction and retrofit environments where centralized lighting control is needed. The system includes: relay cabinets and inserts, command modules, a handheld display unit (HDU), power supplies, relays and fully digital switches that can be programmed using the HDU.
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.
