Schneider Electric launched its Square D PowerLogic EGX300 integrated gateway-server. PowerLogic EGX300 combines Ethernet gateway functionality with an embedded Web page creation function and extensive on-board memory. With EGX300, users can view critical real-time electrical system data and historical use patterns through trend plots to help optimize energy usage and utilize existing electrical infrastructure. PowerLogic EGX300, which requires only a Web browser and Ethernet network, logs and displays real-time data and trend plots from up to 64 PowerLogic system devices, including other gateway devices on the same network.

“The PowerLogic EGX300 provides the flexibility
to meet a variety of system needs,” said Tuan Ta, product manager for Schneider Electric’s Power Monitoring and Control. “It provides a window into your whole electrical system, including meters, circuit breakers, protective relays, and motor controls, to help you optimize your energy usage and existing electrical infrastructure. As your power monitoring needs grow, the EGX300 fits seamlessly with PowerLogic power monitoring software for advanced system analysis.”

The integrated gateway-server’s embedded Web pag e function captures basic energy consumption data, and 512MB of on-board memory allow users to create HTML pages for viewing data from their electrical system and to store third-party Web pages and documents, such as instruction bulletins, and equipment and system diagrams. It can be combined with existing spreadsheet software for simple energy use analysis and trend reports. It also is compatible with all PowerLogic power monitoring software for larger systems in which comprehensive power monitoring is needed.

PowerLogic EGX300 automatically detects networked devices
for easy system setup and sends selected logged data to users’ PCs for additional analysis via e-mail or FTP. It ensures data and system security through password protection and controlled network access to individual Web pages.

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.
