Integrated circuit breaker
This line of low-voltage power circuit breaker features extended contact life, electronic trip and communication modules.
The series NRX low-voltage power circuit breaker is available as an option with the Magnum DS low-voltage, metal-enclosed switchgear. Advantages of the breakers used in this combination include extended contact life through improved fault interruption and open circuit isolation technology; electronic trip innovation including an Arc Flash reduction maintenance system; and breaker-cell mounted communication modules. The breaker’s compact size can accommodate up to eight 800-A frame breakers in a 24-inch-wide structure in traditional ANSI and UL-1558 switchgear; and the breaker can protect up to 65 kA at 480 Vac with SWGR bus bracing at 100 kA standard.

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.
