Ground fault protection circuit breakers
Eaton Corp. has expanded its circuit breaker capabilities to offer enhanced ground fault protection and nonfused current-limiting breaker modules for the Series G circuit breakers with the release of the Earth Leakage Modules and the current-limiting breaker modules.
Eaton Corp. has expanded its circuit breaker capabilities to offer enhanced ground fault protection and nonfused current-limiting breaker modules for the Series G circuit breakers with the release of the Earth Leakage Modules and the current-limiting breaker modules. Equipped with a built-in sensor and ground fault relay, Eaton’s Earth Leakage Modules are designed to protect against equipment damage and increase personnel safety by limiting current. Additionally, the current-limiting breaker modules are designed to meet the increasing capacity of electrical source, providing increased fault currents. They provide advanced system protection during overloads and both low- and high-level short circuits.
Eaton’s current limiter module provides automatic reset after interruption, unlike fused current limiters with a one-time use. Eaton manufactures nonfused current limiting modules in combination with Series G E-Frame breakers with interrupting capacities up to 150 kA at 480 Vac.

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.
