PowerSure CM Series
The PowerSure CM Series surge protective devices (SPDs) are designed to help prevent electric power line disturbances from disrupting or damaging sensitive electronic equipment. These compact AC power surge protectors are rated at 50kA per mode and housed in a weather-resistant (UL Type 4X) enclosure, so they can be installed virtually anywhere in the customer’s electrical system. An optional DIN rail mounting assembly allows customers to install the PowerSure CM Series on standard 35mm industrial DIN rails. It can also be screw-mounted. The PowerSure CM Series also features remote indication of protection status via both LEDs and summary alarm contacts.

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.
