V1000-4X - The V1000-4X is a version of the standard Yaskawa V1000 drive in an integral enclosure that provides the protection required in tough washdown or dust-tight environments. This is a Control Engineering 2011 Engineers' Choice (EC) nominee.The V1000-4X is the NEMA 4X/IP66 version of the V1000 current vector motor microdrive family. Each V1000-4X drive is supplied with an integral enclosure that meets NEMA type 4X/12 indoor use requirements, UL type 4X/12 standards and the IP66 rating of IEC 60529. Each enclosure provides the protection required in tough washdown or dust-tight environments common in food and beverage processing, packaging, metal machining, woodworking, pumping, refrigeration and printing applications. Each enclosure is epoxy-coated to protect against the harmful effects of sanitizing chemicals commonly used in food and other industries.

Designing a dust-tight, water-tight and corrosion-resistant enclosure for a motor drive requires numerous calculations to ensure proper heat dissipation and maintain internal temperatures at or below designated levels. For many manufacturers and OEMs, the cost to design, assemble and test an enclosure to house a motor drive can exceed the cost of the drive itself. The V1000-4X drive family cuts these costs to zero, and also provides the smallest viable form factor for each drive option.

The V1000-4X drive family is available in 200-240 V ac single phase 50/60 Hz, 200-240 V ac three phase 50/60 Hz and 380-480 V ac three phase 50/60 Hz ratings. Single-phase drives are available in 1/8 hp to 5 hp sizes. Three-phase drives are available in 1/8 to 25 hp sizes.

All drives are supplied with a number of standard features including function-block diagram programming, fast 2-ms scan cycle time and starting torque of 200% at 0.5 Hz. Modbus communication is standard, and Profibus-DP, DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP/IP communications are available as options.

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.
