Safety relays for machine safety applications
Idec HR1S safety relays are designed for machine safety applications and have instantaneous and time delay safety outputs, company said.
UL listed, CSA certified and CE marked, as well as being EN ISO 13849-1 Performance level e (PLe), safety category 4, and EN 62061 Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL3) compliant, Idec HR1S safety relays are reportedly designed for machine safety applications.
HR1S safety relays are reportedly predictable and controllable with several variations available including models with instantaneous (STOP 0) safety outputs or with time delay (STOP 1) safety outputs for various machine safety design requirements. Internal safety relays or other operations can be monitored with LED indicator and various auxiliary outputs.
Optional removable terminals reportedly make these safety relays easier to wire, decreasing downtime and the chance of wiring errors when replacing the unit; simply unplug the terminal and plug it into a new relay.

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.
