EC: SINAMICS V20 Variable Frequency Drive
Motion Control - Drives: The SINAMICS V20 variable frequency drive is the cost-effective, reliable and easy-to-use ac drive for basic applications. This is a Control Engineering 2014 Engineers’ Choice finalist.
SINAMICS V20 is the versatile drive system for basic demands. Today, in an increasing number of applications in plant and machinery construction, individual automation and drive solutions are demanded that automate basic motion sequences with low associated requirements. With its compact SINAMICS V20, the basic performance ac drive, Siemens offers a simple and cost-effective drive solution for these types of applications. SINAMICS V20 sets itself apart with its quick commissioning times, ease of operation, robustness and cost-efficiency. With four frame sizes, it covers a power range extending from 0.12 to 15 kW (1/6 to 20 hp).
SINAMICS V20 helps to minimize your costs. Engineering, commissioning and operating costs as well as those in operation must be kept as low as possible. You have precisely the right answer with our SINAMICS V20. To increase energy efficiency, the drive is equipped with a control technique to achieve optimum energy efficiency through automatic flux reduction. Not only this, it displays the actual energy consumption and has additional, integrated energy-saving functions. This allows energy consumption to be slashed drastically. Further, engineering and start-up costs are greatly reduced due to the unique, battery powered parameter loader. The parameter loader allows for easy cloning as well as programming with no power connected to the drive.

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.
