PV, wind power generation fuses
Cooper Bussmann has expanded its CUBEFuse portfolio of Class CF fuses for protecting solar and wind power generation installations.
Cooper Bussmann has expanded its CUBEFuse portfolio of Class CF fuses for protecting solar and wind power generation installations. The finger-safe CUBEFuse design delivers the benefits of up to an 80% smaller footprint compared to other fuse solutions while limiting exposure to live parts for increased safety. Listed to UL 2579, the PVCF photovoltaic (PV) version withstands extreme temperature cycling conditions ranging from -40 F through 90 C. It is designed to protect PV cell arrays by responding quickly to the lower fault current levels encountered in solar installations. Recognized to UL 248, the fast-acting WCF wind power version is specially rated at 690 Vac and available in ampacities from 1 to 100 amps along with special 30-, 60-, or 100-amp 690 V rated ampacity-rejecting holders that help prevent overfusing. With current-limiting Class J electrical performance, the wind power CUBEFuse increases electrical safety by reducing arc flash hazard levels.

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.
