Industrial UPS with amplitude detection for accurate sensing
The Cyberex PowerBuilt industrial uninterruptible power supply (UPS) from ABB features a proprietary amplitude detection control design as well as a full-color touchscreen graphical user interface (GUI).
The Cyberex PowerBuilt industrial uninterruptible power supply (UPS) from ABB features a proprietary amplitude detection control design resulting in faster, more accurate fault sensing for system reliability and critical load protection.
The Cyberex PowerBuilt is an online double-conversion industrial UPS designed to support the continuing demand from downstream refining and petrochemical processing, upstream oil and gas processing and power generation. The Cyberex PowerBuilt industrial UPS is equipped with a user interface with full-color touch screen graphical user interface (GUI) for self-guided serviceability with minimal engagement, as well as the latest communication protocols. It also features a patented digital static transfer switch design, which enhances system performance through increased redundancy and reliability. The fully rated switch provides better protection of critical loads from input power transients and interruptions by eliminating any single point of failure.
The Cyberex PowerBuilt industrial UPS features an innovative insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT)-based pulse-width modulation (PWM) inverter design that employs active current limitation for higher short circuit tolerance. The active short-circuit method ensures the best possible current clearing waveform, while still protecting the inverter from catastrophic failure. In the event of a load side short circuit or over-current that cannot be supplied by the inverter, the UPS logic will transfer away from the active inverter source, thereby preventing the fault condition from damaging the inverter.

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.
