Omega Engineering offers N101 Series NEMA motor starters
N101 NEMA motor starters from Omega Engineering feature internal 24-bit floating point math calculations with RMS calibrated current measurement, as well as a unique "alarm without trip" option.
The N101 NEMA motor starters from Omega engineering provide 24 Vdc control power. The pulse width modulated (PWM) coil controller minimizes coil power consumption. Units feature exclusive internal 24-bit floating point math calculations with RMS calibrated current measurement, as well as a unique "alarm without trip" option that supports critical must-run applications.
The DIN rail mountable, size 00 to 2 motor starters meet or exceed global standards for EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) immunity and emissions. The units provide phase loss and current unbalance protection, ambient compensated overload, and LED status indication (of trip, trip class, motor thermal state, reset, and overload state), and more.

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.
