Parallel up to eight 750-kVA modules, eliminating single points of failure, with the 750-kVA SG series digital energy UPS from GE Digital Energy.
Parallel up to eight 750-kVA modules, eliminating single points of failure, with the 750-kVA SG series digital energy UPS from GE Digital Energy. Operating in a double conversion mode with true continuous on-line voltage and frequency independent operation, the system uses a space vector modulation digital control technique to create a faster transient response and low output distortion of 3%. The system achieves less than 5% input THD with six-pulse rectifier and eliminates the need for an input isolation transformer.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
