Control line lightning and surge protectors
L-com's single stage AC/DC control line lightning and surge protectors protect 8 individual single-ended AC or DC control lines using grounding lugs to provide tie points.
L-com Inc. has added a series of single stage ac/dc control line lightning and surge protectors. The new products protect 8 individual single ended ac or dc control lines using grounding lugs to provide tie points for earth ground. They all feature removable screw terminal strips for easy installation.
Lightning and surge protectors are necessary for many wired connectivity lines. They protect sensitive electrical equipment on either end of a cable from transient voltage, or spikes, which may be caused by lightning strikes and other factors. AC and DC control lines are used in a range of applications and are commonly found on measurement and control equipment, computers, motor controllers and industrial automation equipment.
The ac protectors feature Metal Oxide Varistors (MOV), while the dc protectors feature uni-polar Transient Voltage Suppression (TVS) Diodes rated at 1500 Watts.

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.
