Max-E series switches use self-powered wireless switch technology to control individual luminaires. Lights can be controlled by on/off or dimmed with wireless self-powered remote controls or rocker switches that do not require batteries. The switches can be installed anywhere on practically any surface and have a range of up to 150 feet. The factory-installed receiver arrives pre-programmed for the switch and can be easily field adjusted to provide multiple fixture control.

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.
