System Sensor's B200SR intelligent sounder bases can be used as part of a general evacuation signal.
System Sensor launched the B200SR intelligent sounder bases, which support the System Sensor synchronization protocol, enabling them to be used as part of the general evacuation signal. They meet UL 268 and UL 464 requirements. Installers attach the mounting plate to a standard junction box, which is left free to store excess wire. The base then connects to the mounting plate for a surface-mount look without exposed components. The base’s mounting screws are then covered by the attached sensor head to prevent tampering.
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.
