POY Finalist: Shaft voltage test kit
Finalist in Electric Motors and Drives in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
Fans and pumps of commercial HVAC systems, conveyors of industrial production lines, and motors controlled by variable frequency drives are vulnerable to electrical bearing damage.
The Aegis Shaft Voltage Test Kit makes it easier for maintenance departments to measure and document damaging VFD-induced voltages before bearing damage and equipment downtime occur. Because the kit can test every VFD-controlled motor in a production plant or mechanical room, it is ideal for maintenance personnel and testing contractors who need to determine whether a motor is subject to stray shaft voltages large enough to harm bearings.

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.
