Line of compact, lightweight reactors offering flexibility, performance
The complete line of RLW Reactors from MTE Corporation was designed with OEM’s, System Integrators, and Panel Builders in mind; for peak performance in a compact lightweight design.
MTE Corporation has announced the release of its complete line of RLW Reactors. The RLW is a ‘World’ version of a best in class RL reactor line, according to MTE Corporation, and was designed with OEM’s, System Integrators, and Panel Builders in mind. It’s optimally designed for peak performance in a compact lightweight design that is small in size and weight.
Standardized components provide for a quick and easy build, while an adapter plate provides a drop-in replacement to previous reactors. It also offers a superior reactor DIN rail mounting solution for installation strength and security.
The new RLW ‘World’ line offers expanded low current ratings, expanded inductance values, and standard impedances that are consistent with other MTE reactor solutions.
The RLW product line is available from 0.5 through 750 amps, supports voltages from 208V to 690V, and has four inductance values within each current range to support your global needs. All RLW reactors are UL / cUL listed for 208V thru 600V and CE marked for 208V thru 690V.
The MTE RLW reactors help keep equipment running longer by absorbing many of the power line disturbances which otherwise damage or shut down inverters, variable frequency drives, variable speed controllers or other sensitive equipment. They are a potent filtering solution for virtually any six pulse rectifier or power conversion unit.

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.
