AcuAMP line of current sensors now includes ac ground fault sensors and dc current transducers and switches
The acuAMP line of current sensors now includes ac ground fault sensors and dc current transducers and switches. The GFS series of ground fault sensors monitors all current-carrying conductors in grounded single and three-phase delta or wye systems. Available in fixed-core models, the GFS series features jumper-selectable setpoints of 5, 10 or 30 mA. The sensors can accommodate up to 14 AWG copper wire and feature mechanical relay outputs with either manual or auto reset. The DCT series of dc current transducers combines a Hall Effect sensor and signal conditioner into a single package for use in dc current applications up to 400 A.

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.
