UL and cUL Certification is complete for 27 models within Wago Corporation’s Epsitron family of advanced power supplies. Wago Epsitron family of advanced power supplies, received UL and cUL Certification. Certification applies to 27 models within the Epsitron Electronic Circuit Breaker, Pro-Power Supply, Uninterruptible Power Supply, and Redundancy module lines.

787 Series Epsitron Electronic Circuit Breakers (ECBs): 4-channel ECBs separately protect up to four current paths (up to 10A at 24 V dc max each) for power supplies without “topboost.” Ideal for multiple loads from one power supply, ECBs independently program load-appropriate current ratings and trip times. ECBs also offer remote resetting of tripped channels.  

787 Series  Epsitron-Pro-Power Supplies: 1- and 3-phase Primary Switch Mode PRO Power Supplies process power peaks in systems with high-output requirements. Features: 93% efficiency, PowerBoost and TopBoost functions; select models also offer free configuration/monitoring software and Line Monitor capability, Wago said.

787 Series Epsitron Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS): UPS modules shield complex automation systems and components from common disturbances (e.g., voltage fluctuations, harmonic distortion and outages). Features: free configuration and monitoring software and LCD/keypad and RS-232 interface.

787 Series Epsitron Redundant Modules: The 787 Series redundancy modules safeguard two power supplies that are parallel-connected, providing system redundancy or additional power.

Wago provides spring pressure connection technology that eliminates loose wires resulting from vibration and temperature cycling, while providing highly reliable, corrosion-resistant and maintenance-free connections. Other products include DIN-rail, PCB and chassis mount terminal blocks; signal conditioners; the Wago-I/O-System; among other.

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.
