Sine wave inverter fits in 1U rack
This 3 kVA pure sine wave inverter provides clean output power for sensitive loads and includes an automatic bypass switch.
The AEP-A3000R series is a 3 kVA pure sine wave inverter packaged in a 1U rackmount design. Compared to quasi-sine wave units, the inverter provides clean output power for sensitive loads and improving ac equipment performance. The inverter family is available in three standard input configurations of 12 Vdc, 24 Vdc and 48 Vdc. Outputs are available in 115 or 230 Vac (50/60 Hz) versions, which are regulated to +/-3% or better. A built-in, 4-6 millisecond automatic bypass switch allows redundant operation from utility power if the dc supply drops out. All models in the series feature circuit and overload protection with digital displays and alarms to indicate low input voltage, short circuit, input overvoltage, over temperature, overload and low battery. The display also indicates voltage, current, power and temperature.
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.
