Static transfer switches are designed for critical infrastructure applications
GE's Critical Power's Zenith STS-3 Series three-phase static transfer switches and Zenith STS-1 Series single-phase static transfer switches are designed for critical infrastructure applications.
GE Critical Power (NYSE: GE) released the GE Zenith STS-3 Series three-phase static transfer switches and GE Zenith STS-1 Series single-phase static transfer switches for critical infrastructure applications.
The GE Zenith STS-3 static transfer switches provide power source redundancy in UPS system architectures to increase product mean time between failure between the power source and the critical load, using features such as internal triple redundancy of control power and logic.
GE's STS-3 Series units meet key technical requirements by performing out-of-phase transfers between power sources without undue inrush current on the electrical system when power distribution unit transformers are employed on the load side of the static transfer switch.
The GE Zenith STS-1 Series static transfer switches provide a single-phase solution for customers who want to deploy the switches in a rack-mount form factor to provide dual input source capabilities to rack-mounted single-cord information technology (IT) servers or other non-IT critical process equipment.
GE Zenith STS-3 Series three-phase units are ideal for data center, telecommunications, financial and industrial critical infrastructure customers seeking centralized power source redundancy, while the GE Zenith STS-1 single-phase static transfer switches are for point-of-use power source redundancy at the localized rack level.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
