Power control system
The ASCO 7000 Series power control systems from Emerson Network Power received seismic certification.
The ASCO 7000 Series power control systems from Emerson Network Power received seismic certification after being tested on a tri-axial seismic simulator with 1000 lbs of force. The low- and medium-voltage power control systems operate even during a simulated seismic event. The equipment was fully cabled throughout testing on the shake table. A cable attached to the product’s top supplied it with rated ampacity, which raised its center of gravity and added weight. Testing with fully rated cables proved the cables would not loosen from their lugs.

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.
