Ground fault protector
ABB’s F200 Ground Fault Equipment Protector (GFEP) is designed to protect equipment against damaging line-to-ground currents and can be applied to most electrical networks.
ABB’s F200 Ground Fault Equipment Protector (GFEP) is designed to protect equipment against damaging line-to-ground currents by disconnecting all ungrounded conductors of the faulted circuit. The ABB F200 GFEP line consists of the 2-pole F202 for single-phase networks and the 4-pole F204 for split phases, Delta, and Wye networks. The F200 GFEP detects ground faults by continuously measuring the current balance between live conductors and the neutral using a toroidal current transformer. F200 GFEP devices can be applied to most electrical networks up to 480Vac and can be installed in distribution panels and on critical equipment. They are suitable for a variety of industrial and commercial applications including: oil and gas, water and wastewater treatment, water pumps for fountains and irrigation, pharmaceutical manufacturing, semiconductor facilities, outdoor installations, and heating equipment

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.
