Finalist in Electrical Distribution in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition
Eaton has expanded its circuit breaker capabilities to offer better ground fault protection and nonfused current limiting breaker modules for the Series G circuit breakers. The Earth Leakage Modules are equipped with built-in sensor and ground fault relay to protect against equipment damage and increase safety by limiting current. The current limiting breaker modules are designed to meet increasing capacity of the electrical source, protect the system during overloads and short circuits, and automatically reset after interruption. It uses stationary and moving contact arm design to create a second set of contacts to assist during high-fault interruption.
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.
