Circuit breaker analysis mobile application
The Circuit Breaker Analyzer App runs on a Microsoft Windows 7-compatible tablet or PC to identify potential mechanical failures before they happen.
Circuit Breaker Analyzer's CBAnalyzer application is designed for Windows 7-compatible tablets and personal computers. The CBAnalyzer app is used in conjunction with an external calibrated accelerometer that attaches magnetically to the breaker under test to identify potential mechanical failures before they happen. The tool helps customers avoid unplanned downtime and confirm arc-flash calculations based on trip times without the need to modify existing equipment or remove them from service.
The CBAnalyzer also allows the user to operate the breaker in any sequence desired, including trip, charge, or close. The vibration data created by the breaker operation is captured, displayed locally against previous tests, and analyzed via a Web-based application to identify potential problems based on vibration signature and the model of the breaker under test. Data saved to the online accounts can be used for equipment management; trending; and further analysis options, including specialized issue diagnosis.

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.
