Wago Epsitron family of advanced power supplies, received UL and cUL Certification. Certification applies to 27 models within the Epsitron Electronic Circuit Breaker, Pro-Power Supply, Uninterruptible Power Supply, and Redundancy module lines.
787 Series Epsitron Electronic Circuit Breakers (ECBs): 4-channel ECBs separately protect up to four current paths (up to 10A at 24 V dc max each) for power supplies without “topboost.” Ideal for multiple loads from one power supply, ECBs independently program load-appropriate current ratings and trip times. ECBs also offer remote resetting of tripped channels.
787 Series Epsitron-Pro-Power Supplies: 1- and 3-phase Primary Switch Mode PRO Power Supplies process power peaks in systems with high-output requirements. Features: 93% efficiency, PowerBoost and TopBoost functions; select models also offer free configuration/monitoring software and Line Monitor capability, Wago said.
787 Series Epsitron Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS): UPS modules shield complex automation systems and components from common disturbances (e.g., voltage fluctuations, harmonic distortion and outages). Features: free configuration and monitoring software and LCD/keypad and RS-232 interface.
787 Series Epsitron Redundant Modules: The 787 Series redundancy modules safeguard two power supplies that are parallel-connected, providing system redundancy or additional power.
Wago provides spring pressure connection technology that eliminates loose wires resulting from vibration and temperature cycling, while providing highly reliable, corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free connections. Other products include DIN-rail, PCB and chassis mount terminal blocks; signal conditioners; the Wago-I/O-System; among other.

Annual 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.
