Solar-powered displacement unit
The solar Plexicon by Titus HVAC uses an energy harvesting platform for auto-changeover action.
The Titus HVAC solar Plexicon uses a wireless, energy harvesting process to power the unit. It is the only displacement unit in the industry to heat as well as cool, and use solar energy as its power source. The new solar Plexicon uses a wireless, energy-harvesting platform to power the auto-changeover action when changing to the cooling or heating mode. The energy harvesting process is achieved using solar light energy including sun and ambient room light. The solar Plexicon is designed to operate with all types of HVAC systems in the market including single duct, dual duct, fan-powered, and DX, thanks to a narrow temperature band for cooling and heating changeover actuation. In addition, the changeover setpoints are adjustable, providing maximum flexibility by allowing the installing contractor to customize the band to fit the type of HVAC system it may be using.

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.
