A new high resistant ground fault (HRGF) feature identifies the location of the feeder breaker circuit where the ground fault exists with no added hardware, which saves time locating the fault. Ground fault priority tripping is also available. If a second HRGF ground fault occurs before the first one is fixed, the system will trip the feeder that has the fault based on the load prioritization identified by the user.

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.
