Medium-voltage transfer, bypass/isolation switches
Russelectric's medium-voltage bypass/isolation switches meet or exceed IEEE, NEMA, and ANSI standards and provide the functions of an automatic transfer switch.
Russelectric’s medium-voltage (5 to 15 kV) circuit breaker-type transfer switches and bypass/isolation switches are tested, listed, and labeled under UL 1008A, making them suitable for use in legally required emergency power systems. These switches transfer electrical loads between normal and emergency power sources through the carefully controlled opening and closing of circuit breakers and may be configured for open- or closed-transition transfer. All switch functions are controlled by Russelectric’s RPTCS programmable microprocessor-based control system. All medium-voltage circuit breaker-type transfer switches meet or exceed stringent IEEE, NEMA, and ANSI standards. They provide all the functions of an automatic transfer switch plus the ability to bypass power from live source to load in the event the transfer switch becomes disabled. In addition, they are designed to allow isolation and de-energization of the automatic transfer breakers for maintenance, testing, and repair.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
