Three-phase power supplies with current limiting
These three-phase power supplies include constant current mode, which limits output current to typically 110% of rated current with a simultaneously lowered voltage output in an overload condition.
The 787 PRO series three-phase power supplies come with freemonitoring and configuration software and feature PowerBoost and TopBoostfunctions, line monitor capability and 93% efficiency. The six-model line ofthree-phase power supplies offers a wide input voltage range; a 24 Vdc output;and 10 A-, 20 A- or 40 A-rated nominal output, depending on model.
In short-circuit conditions, TopBoost provides 60 A ofadditional 50 ms reserve for tripping of miniature circuit breakers. PowerBoostoffers up to 200% of rated current for up to four seconds to assist power-up ofheavy loads such as motors. All models include constant current mode, whichlimits output current to typically 110% of rated current with a simultaneouslylowered voltage output in an overload following PowerBoost. Select modelsprovide adjustable output voltage characteristics: a time-limited constantcurrent and permanently reduced current (e.g., Fuse Mode or Mixed Mode).
The line monitor (on select models) incorporates anLCD/keypad and an RS-232 interface with free software for monitoring andconfiguring signal outputs and overcurrent behavior. Monitoring from the LCDand software via RS232 interface eliminates components such as volt/amp meters,phase monitoring devices and operational hour meters.
LEDs on the power supply indicate errors. An optional LCDscreen provides current, voltage output and line monitoring information. Onselect models, four active signal outputs may be used for function monitoringand data transfer to higher-level systems. All units employ pluggable CAGECLAMP electrical connectors for fast, easy and maintenance-free terminations.PRO Power Supplies carry UL508 and UL60950 and use a rugged metal housing thatmay be DIN-rail mounted horizontally or vertically.

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.
