Power distribution unit
Finalist in Electrical Distribution in Consulting-Specifying Engineer's 2011 Product of the Year competition
The HP intelligent power distribution unit (iPDU) has a modular core and stick design to allow remote power monitoring and control in a data center. Remote management in the iPDU core allows monitoring of current, voltage, wattage, and power that is 99% accurate across six International Electrical Commission C19 outlets. It is mountable in 1U or 0U spaces to save rack space. Six load segment breakers prevent a problem in one segment from causing a power outage on the entire iPDU. The unit communicates with a power supply unit for auto-discovery of the server, redundant PSUs, and iPDUs.

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.
