24 V dc power supplies, 0.75-40 A
Balluff has introduced a new line of power supplies designed to meet the needs of automation control suites. Ten models in the line include a wide range of 24 V dc units with single and three phase inputs.
Industrial automation systems need reliable power– power that is clean, spike-free, and controlled to provide the amount of voltage and amperage required by the system. Balluff has introduced a new line of power supplies designed to meet the needs of automation control suites. Ten models in the line include a wide range of 24 V dc units with single and three phase inputs.
With output current ranges from 0.75 A (18 W) to 40 A (960 W), there is a size for most applications. If more power is needed multiple power supplies can be connected in parallel for additional current capacity.
Company says other features include built-in advanced overload and overvoltage protection, load regulation to +/- 1%, ripple/noise less than 50 mV on most models, adjustable outputs to compensate for differences in specific control needs, all models are din rail mountable. Mean time between failures for all are over 210,000 hours / 24 years while operating at published specifications. www.balluff.com/PowerSupplies

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.
