Universal Lighting wireless ballasts
Receive commands without the need for extra control wires with the release of the DEMANDflex ballast family and the DCL (Demand Control Lighting) controls from Universal Lighting Technology.
Receive commands without the need for extra control wires with the release of the DEMANDflex ballast family and the DCL (Demand Control Lighting) controls from Universal Lighting Technology. The ballasts have the flexibility to have power levels tuned during installation at the circuit level to optimize and maximize energy savings. DCL controls allow for local control with energy management systems and external control via the Internet with networked managed systems, as well as integration with utility demand response programs. DCL lighting controls reduce power levels as needed by as much as 50%, providing significant demand level and usage reductions. Because there are no ballast control wires, DEMANDflex ballasts are ideal for both retrofit and new construction applications. DEMANDflex ballasts can be initially installed and tuned to specific power and light levels during a lighting retrofit with DCL control capabilities added at a later date. Lightfair booth No. 445

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
