EC: SSGB-1S40-5U 40AH Battery Bank
Power - Energy, power protection, UPS: Falcon's 40 Ah battery bank is a ruggedized wide temperature (-30 C to 63 C) extended runtime battery bank that provides long back-up runtimes for protecting equipment operating in harsh environments. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice Awards Honorable Mention.
Falcon's 40 amp hour (AH) battery bank is a ruggedized wide temperature (-30 C to 63 C) extended runtime battery bank that provides electrical engineers with long back-up runtimes for protecting connected computers and instrumentation equipment operating in harsh environments. Also, this battery bank provides over 10 times the runtime of other batteries, safeguarding critical processes against prolonged power outages.
As an option to Falcon's industrial-grade SSG and SSG-RP wide temperature rated UPS models, the 40 AH battery bank carries a UL listing when powering Falcon's UL-listed SSG2.5KRP-1 UPS model. Electrical engineers will appreciate that the SSGB-1S40-5U 40AH battery bank is a rugged battery option that consists of eight deep-cycle, valve regulated lead-acid, maintenance-free 40 AH batteries and two internal one-amp chargers. The batteries and chargers are housed in a sleek rack mount enclosure that takes only 5U (8.75 in.) of vertical rack space. The battery banks may be interconnected or "daisy chained" to provide exceptionally long battery runtimes and can be easily added in the field after Falcon's SSG units are installed and in service.
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.
