Carlo Gavazzi

released an addition to the Solitron family of solid-state relays.

RJ1P Series one-package microprocessor-controlled relays

(see PDF) have analog input and proportional output capabilities and are capable of switching single-phase 230, 480, or 600 V ac, up to 50 A ac loads with five operating modes, when controlled by 0-10 V dc or 4-20mA signals.


Carlo Gavazzi RJ1P Series one-package microprocessor-controlled relays have analog input and proportional output capabilities.

With an integrated heat sink, RJ1P is ready for DIN-rail mounting. The solid-state relay provides equipment designers the ability to precisely control output power. 4 mA or 0 V dc corresponds to 0% output, linearly increasing to 100% at 20 mA or 10 V dc.
A rotary selector switch on the front of the device is used to select the mode of operation– either phase angle, distributed full cycle, or three types of burst modes (1, 3, and 10 sec.) 
It works with analog output temperature controllers for switching applications, including heating and lighting and comes with an integrated varistor and extremely high surge capabilities (I2 = 18,000 A2s).
RJ1P is suitable for HVAC, lamp and lighting control, printing, plastic and rubber, wood, and industrial heating applications.
The Series carries the cRUus, CE and RoHS marks.

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
