The RIDERSERIES II relays are comprised of a line of base sockets combined with a line of industrial relays that can speed installation for the OEM and provide reliability and ease of maintenance for process industry users. The sockets feature connection technology choices including Weidmuller’s Push-In connection technology that can reduce installation time up to 75%. The relay contacts can switch loads up to 16A at 24VDC or 230VAC for power or signal switching. The relay modules include features such as heavy duty industrial pinning, integrated LEDs and push-to-test levers. The heavy duty industrial pins eliminate accidental pin bending. The integrated status LED and diode circuit protect controllers from inductive kick back damage and allow for easy and instant troubleshooting. The test lever allows the operator to test the output circuit without energizing the coil.

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.
