The 5-11 kVA Eaton 9PX UPS provides reliable, versatile and efficient backup power and protection for medium-to-high-density, virtualized information technology environments in computer rooms and small data centers in industrial, manufacturing, medical and telecommunications applications. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The Eaton 9PX UPS sets a standard for up-time and protection in 5-11 kVA applications. The double-conversion, online 9PX is compatible with all major switches and servers, provides 28% more wattage than traditional UPSs, and operates at up to 94% efficiency, making it the most efficient UPS in its class.

The 9PX meets reliability requirements of critical IT environments with accessories, including extended battery runtime options, hot-swappable batteries, internal bypass and maintenance bypass. Using Eaton's ABM technology, the 9PX optimizes battery recharge time, eliminates overcharging and continuously monitors battery conditions to extend battery service life by 50%, and is covered by a two-year warranty including batteries.

Every 9PX includes a network card and Eaton's Intelligent Power Software Suite, an innovative pairing of power management and protection software. By implementing the software, users can monitor and manage an entire power system from one dashboard, or directly from major virtualization platforms, such as VMware vCenter Server, Citrix XenServer, Microsoft SCVMM, Red Hat, and other Xen open source platforms.

The software solution also enables automatic live migration of virtual machines to ensure critical workloads remain up and running in the event of an extended outage, and bolsters business continuity by moving critical applications to available servers either within an organization, or to a co-located facility or public cloud.

A graphical LCD interface on the 9PX also helps users manage energy costs and consumption by providing clean information on UPS status and measurements, including key data such as efficiency rating, alarm history, available runtime, load percentage and more. The LCD interface tilts 45 degrees for optimal viewing and rotates to match rack and tower installations, allowing insight into all power data at the touch of a button.

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.
