Eaton 9130 uninterruptible power system (UPS) is designed to provide smart and energy efficient power protection, protecting computers and servers, especially those for networking and communications. New 700 to 3,000 VA 9130 UPS models serve the power protection needs and dynamic demands of integrated, unified communications (UC), such as instant messaging, e-mail, voice and video, Eaton says, regulating voltage and frequency.
When the UPS detect a potential problem, it alarms or takes corrective action, including transferring power to and from a bypass source automatically.
Eaton explains that integrated communications require protections against downtime, data loss, and process interruption.

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.
