Uninterruptible power supply
Hewlett-Packard's UPS R1500 G3 and UPS R/T3000 G2
Hewlett-Packard Co.’s UPS R1500 G3 and UPS R/T3000 G2 uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems are designed for customers managing space-constrained rack environments. These systems can communicate directly in several networking environments with the advanced communication firmware technology inside. The R/T3000 G2 packs up to 3300-VA and 3000 W into a 3.5-in. design. It also includes a rack-to-tower conversion kit for nonrack applications. The R1500 G3 is a slim 1500 VA rack-mount UPS designed to ease network managers’ need for additional rack space into a 1.75-in. design. HP has an Enhanced Battery Management (EBM) technology that can double the battery life within the HP UPS. For additional management flexibility of connected/protected devices, the UPSs provide separate load, allowing for a customizable configuration. Bundled with HP’s new Power Protector software, the HP UPS R1500 G3 and HP UPS R/T3000 G2 feature serial and USB ports for data exchange with the host computer and remote shutdown.

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.
