Frequency inverter with Powerlink
The ACOPOSinverter P84 has an integrated Powerlink interface and a performance range of 0.37 to 500 kW.
For complex machines and systems, B+R offers the ACOPOSinverter P84 with an integrated Powerlink interface and a performance range of 0.37 to 500 kW. The P84 has a selection of onboard digital and analog I/O channels to control a wide range of technology functions. An integrated Powerlink hub also simplifies bus cabling. An encoder interface can be added to the P84 for applications with strict requirements for speed or torque control. This helps fit the inverter perfectly into the B+R Motion concept and allows movements to be synchronized with the servo drives.
Thanks to the integrated B+R Automation Studio environment, no other software tools are needed. The Motion Wizard assists the user when inserting the P84 into the project and handles the most important basic settings. This takes much of the guesswork out of commissioning. The System Diagnostics Manager makes it possible to perform full diagnostics or read the status of the machine even over the Internet.

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.
