Eaton's DS7 soft-start controllers
Eaton introduces DS7 soft-start controllers, which provide smooth acceleration and deceleration of the load, minimizing shock to mechanical components. Designed for pump, fan, and conveyor belt applications—as well as water/wastewater and heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) industries—the DS7 soft starters reduce demands made on a motor during start-up, resulting in reduced energy requirements. The Eaton DS7 soft starter can provide customers with the benefits of soft starting without necessitating a change in enclosure sizes or additional assemblies. It also has an integrated bypass relay. The DS7 is available for current ranges from 16 to 32 amps. With an asymmetric delay angle control, the DS7 helps make torque behavior similar to a three-phase starter. It can take 24 V of direct or alternating current, or 110 V/230 V of alternating control voltage. It is Underwriters Laboratories approved.

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.
