Automatic voltage regulators

Automatic Voltage Regulators from Staco Energy Products Continuously Control Output Voltage to 1%.

09/20/2010


Staco Energy Products introduces its latest addition to their line of Automatic Voltage Regulators (AVR) for the power conditioning in demanding applications.  Based on a series regulation transformer controlled by variable transformers (VTs), these robust units offer tight output regulation and are easily customizable.  The basic AVR will handle more than 90% of typical power problems – handling all but the most extreme voltage swings.  Options such as suppression of high voltage transients, high harmonic content or site load balance can be added – providing site-specific power correction in a one-box solution.  The Staco AVR is ideal for broadcast transmitter sites and studios, whole floor regulation in high-rise buildings, input voltage regulation for elevator control, large A/C chillers, lighting systems, industrial automation process control, CNC equipment, robotics, dockside or shipboard voltage regulation and power conditioning, XC-ray, CT scan and MRI power conditioning, commercial broadcast and military mobile communications trucks, trailers and shelters and more.

All Staco AVR units feature extremely high overload/inrush ratings.  Gold plated contacts on all coils and nickel plated copper bus bars are standard.  They are robust and durable enough to withstand the constant vibration of mobile applications.  Individual coil protection means these proven units avoid catastrophic cascade failures which are common with other topologies.  An industry-leading three year warranty attests to the robust design and workmanship inherent in each Staco AVR.

These extremely efficient units have no active devices in the power path – which allows trouble-free, and maintenance-free operations as well as a very low cost of ownership. Easy front panel allows access for service/installation.  All of these features and benefits are packed into a small footprint – so the units take up minimal floor-space or wall-space.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
