Motor control center
The Freedom Arc-Resistant Motor Control Center (MCC) is designed to contain arc blast energy should an arc flash be triggered and features insulated horizontal and vertical buses as well as isolation barriers between adjacent structures.
Eaton's Freedom Arc-Resistant motor control center (MCC) is designed to contain arc blast energy should an arc flash be triggered. The Freedom MCC is built without exhaust channels or roof flaps and is designed so as it doesn't need additional clearance or venting ductwork above the assembly, simplifying installation. All doors are constructed from 12-gauge steel and secured with hinges and latches. 4-in. sections are added to the first and last structures to increase the structural integrity of the MCC and enhance personnel safety. The MCC also includes insulated horizontal and vertical buses, as well as isolation barriers between adjacent structures.
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.
