Class RK1high-speed fuses
Class RK1high-speed fuse product line is designed to safeguard sensitive power electronics while meeting the National Electrical Code requirements for branch circuit protection and performing to the industry standards of a semiconductor fuse.The additional safeguards in the HSRK hybrid design result in leading cost effectiveness and a significant increase in safety.
These HSRK fuses are intended to be used with a disconnect switch to allow end users the ease of selecting a single fuse. The dual function of the HSRK fuse reduces the expense of replacement parts while increasing cost savings.
Recent concern about electrical safety in industrial environments calls for more current-limiting fuses to be installed in electrical systems, reducing arc flash potential and the incident energy levels produced under fault conditions.The use of HSRK fuses can reduce incident energy levels enough to change the category of protective clothing that workers are required to wear while working on equipment in an energized state.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
