DC/DC converter series
The DCC90 series dc to dc converters by A.C.E. and FEAS are suitable for DIN rail or wall mounting in rough conditons.
Automated Control Engineering Group (A.C.E.) and FEAS have released the vibration resistant dc/dc converter series DCC90 for use under rough conditions.
The DCC90 converters are suitable for DIN rail or wall mounting and supply up to 120 W output power. The converters are usable in a temperature range of -30 to +70 C.
The DCC90 is designed for harsh environments with an epoxy resin casting, providing optimum protection against moisture and dirt.
FEAS provides versions for the input voltage range 18 to 40 V, 30 to 80 V and 70 to 155 V and output voltages of 12 V, 24 V and 48 V. The DCC90 converters are short circuit proof and overload- and open circuit protected.

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.
