Rooftop unit controller
The Prodigy unit controller tracks the runtime of major components in Energence rooftop units, allowing for detailed system performance evaluation as well as operational optimization.
The Prodigy unit controller provides intelligent operation of the Lennox Energence rooftop unit. The control system tracks the runtime of every major component, allowing for detailed system performance evaluation as well as operational optimization. Service reports generated by the unit can be downloaded at any time to provide service verification with an encrypted time and date stamp, unit serial number, alarm code log, and critical runtime information. A self-test function that individually tests critical components ensures correct operation of each system and helps technicians quickly identify maintenance requirements. A SmartWire System helps increase job-site productivity by simplifying field sensor or thermostat installation. Advanced, removable keyed and color-coded connectors help prevent miswiring and ensure the unit and its components are working properly. These Prodigy control system modules ensure smooth and easy integration and effective communication into each BAS.
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.
