The new range of Phoenix Contact circuit breakers combine the advantages of fuse terminal blocks with the benefits of thermal-magnetic circuit breakers. Phoenix Contact UT 6-TMC M series is a resettable, single-pole circuit breaker with screw connection. Tripped circuit breakers on the TMC are clearly indicated and can be easily reset with the press of a button. The series is available in 11 graded steps for nominal currents from 0.5 to 16 A. Two bridge shafts simplify distribution. Measuring just 12.3 mm wide, the UT 6-TMC M circuit breakers occupy 30% less space than conventional 17.5-mm circuit breakers. The series is part of Phoenix Contact's Clipline Complete system, which features standardized push-in bridging, marking and testing accessories for all connection technologies.

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.
