Uninterruptible power supply
The Cyberex Cyberwave Industrial from Thomas & Betts comes with topology that separates the rectifier and charger.
Thomas & Betts introduced the Cyberex Cyberwave Industrial, a three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) with topology that separates the rectifier and charger, enabling the inverter to operate at greater efficiency and provide better control of the UPS output. The inverter tolerates high overloads because an insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT)-based pulse width modulation design enables efficient and rapid switching. The product features operation to an ambient temperature of 122 F with only 10% power derating. Service life is improved by charging technology, and several different battery bus voltages can be specified.

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.
