Surge protection quiz
The Protection I.Q. Quiz from Mersen challenges customers to test their knowledge of surge protection.
Mersen announced its online Protection I.Q. (PIQ) Quiz, which challenges customers to test their knowledge of surge protection. Surge-related downtime on machines can cost time, money, and resources to bring back on-line. With the educational PIQ program, design engineers, specifiers, electrical professionals, and equipment manufacturers discover how much they know about the hazards that can hurt people, equipment, and investments. Archived versions of earlier PIQ quizzes, along with downloadable PIQ quiz notes on topics such as arc flash hazard protection, solar power circuit protection, selective coordination, and overvoltage protection are also available.
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.
