Surface flush mount added to emergency stop buttons
The Surface Flush Mount E-Stop emergency stop buttons by Banner Engineering feature EZ-Light Logic and multiple E-stops can be connected via for system-wide control and safety.
Banner Engineering has added the Surface Flush Mount E-Stop to their emergency stop buttons. The 40-mm emergency stop buttons are designed to mount to a wall or other flat surface without disassembling or individual wiring.
To meet diverse application requirements, the illuminated-base Surface Flush Mount E-Stops feature Banner’s EZ-LIGHT logic and are available with two colors (yellow or green and red lighting) or one color (red lighting). Depending on the model, the LED illuminated-base changes from yellow to flashing red when actuated, immediately alerting operators to an emergency stop condition.
The lockable style actuator can provide supervisory or personal control. It is intended to prevent unauthorized or accidental resetting by accommodating a padlock to secure the actuated button in place.
To enhance safety across the factory floor, multiple E-stops can be connected via the CSS Series Hookup cordsets for system-wide control. By applying an external signal via the M12 QD connector, the illuminated-base models can change from a steady yellow light to a steady red indicator light when a stop condition exists. Models that interface with Safety BUS nodes/gateways are also available.

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.
