Marshalling and distribution terminals
Weidmuller's PRV (Push-In Marshalling) and PPV (Push-In Power Distribution) 4/8/16 terminal block series are designed for DCS marshalling and distributing PLC application signals.
Weidmuller's PRV (Push-In Marshalling) and PPV (Push-In Power Distribution) 4/8/16 terminal block series come equipped with "Push In" connection technology. Both product families support efficient wiring concepts for process industry environments and have been specifically developed for the challenging demands of DCS marshalling and distribution signals of PLC applications. PRV and PPV terminals facilitate simple wiring, reduced cabinet space requirements, expanded wire routing and signal distribution capabilities.
Weidmuller's PRV and PPV marshalling and power distribution terminals are particularly compact by design. The 16-way multi-tier PRV terminal block (64 connections per terminal) is presently a worldwide innovation. It can distribute more than 1,700 signals per 39 inches of DIN rail space. The color-coded (Red/White) clamp actuator buttons help to ensure optimum orientation when installing an extensive marshalling panel and carrying out future maintenance trouble shooting. Coding also assists in generating error-free wire termination points.
The PRV family of terminals consists of 4-, 8- and the innovative 16-tier marshalling distribution terminals; the PPV family comprises the 4- and 8-tier power distribution terminals. Both families incorporate Weidmuller’s "Push In" connection technology, which is designed for touch safety against inadvertent short circuiting. "Push In" technology allows users to simply insert the prepared conductor into the terminal point to quickly create a reliable, jolt-proof, gas-tight connection. Moreover, this connection technology ensures vibration-proof and effective conductor retention forces.

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.
