Cooper Power Systems has introduced the Form 4D, the first in a platform of fully integrated recloser controls. A true plug-in control for Cooper Power Systems reclosers, the Form 4D control is the simple solution for new reclosers and a replacement for legacy controls on currently installed reclosers. Plug-and-play common parts incorporated into the Form 4D control facilitate easy installation, service, and replacement. These design elements were specifically incorporated to ensure future upgradeability as application needs change. The Form 4D control easily integrates with multiple vendors’ products, and the diverse range of communication protocols supports the technology required to take the grid into the future.

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.
