Time Delay Control Switch Relay (TD-CSR) by Electroswitch
A new Time Delay Control Switch Relay (TD-CSR) from Electroswitch provides a safe means of mitigating arc flash danger in local circuit breaker operation by allowing for a manually initiated time-delayed trip or close. A flashing LED notifies the operator of the pending trip or close operation and serves as a warning to evacuate the arc flash area. By allowing an operator time to leave and be outside the room during the trip or close operation, the TD-CSR provides an unmatched measure of safety against arc flash danger. Once a local trip or close is initiated, the 10-sec delay allows an operator time to cancel the pending operation. To avoid any chance of an inadvertent operation, the control pushbuttons must be depressed for 4 continuous secs to activate the 10-sec delay. No special wiring is required for installation.

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.
