The H-Max Series variable frequency drive by Eaton is engineered to increase energy savings, lower utility costs, and reduce emissions in commercial buildings. With an energy control algorithm, the H-Max Series has improved efficiency and stability. Combining new technologies like advanced dc capacitors and new-generation insulated gate bipolar transistors with smarter functions like a real-time clock and calendar, the H-Max Series drives are engineered to provide ultra-efficient operations. These advancements help operate energy-efficient HVAC systems.
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.
