CBS ArcSafe developed this RRS-3MBII remote racking system single application tool for GE Magne Blast circuit breakers of all elevating motor voltages and control circuit layouts. This console allows service personnel to remove and install their Magne Blast Switchgear while standing 30 to 150 ft outside the arc flash hazard boundary, reducing the need for a full-body arc flash hazard suit. Operating on standard 120VAC wall power, the console includes a current monitor for comparing and quantifying racking mechanism conditions, radio remote for cordless operation up to 100 ft, and pushbutton controls. No software programming or cubicle or switchgear modification is necessary.
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.
