Pressure compensation plug
It is becoming increasingly important to provide a protected enclosure environment for valuable and crucial electrical and electronic components. This pressure compensation plug equalizes equipment enclosure pressures.
The DA084 series pressure compensation plug offers a high degree of protection and has a NEMA 3 (IP45) rating. In a tightly closed enclosure, pressure differentials can occur during extreme temperature variations. When this occurs, the risk of dust and humidity being absorbed into the control panel increases dramatically. The easily installed pressure compensation plug is designed to permit a controlled pressure change. The plastic material conforms to UL94 V-0 and is ideal for automotive and petroleum industries.

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.
