Extend wireless capabilities with the three-phase KWh submeters from E-Mon. An expansion of the D-Mon product line, the three-phase submeters offer 15-min. interval data recording and a module for interfacing the installed base to the meter reading system. The submeters also include wireless interface modules for bringing water, gas, and other electric socket-type meters into the energy management system. All submeters provide self-configuring, self-repairing mesh network communications in the 915 MHz band. Operations require no cellular contact and the wireless receivers are FCC-certified to not interfere with existing infrastructure.
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.
