The electrically isolated DC/DC Converte for the Pro-M Power Supplies line features class III protection and resistance to shock and vibration, making it ideal for rugged environments.
The electrically isolated DC/DC Converter for the PRO-M Power Supplies line is optimized for machinery and avoids critical earth loops; from an unregulated or distorted input voltage, it generates a stable, low-distortion output voltage. With class III protection the compact converter is ideal for use in earth-free power systems, such as the battery backup systems found in marine technology, as well as in oil and gas, machinery, and factory automation applications. The DC/DC Converter is a versatile solution for all 24 VDC power supply applications. It features resistance to shock and vibration, an extremely thin profile, over 91% efficiency, and a status signal for remote monitoring.
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.
