Insulated motor cable
The Topflex 620 VFD is resistant to oils, coolants and solvents and is double-shielded against electrical disturbances
The Topflex 620 VFD is a flexible-PVC, XLPE-insulated power cable that is designed for applications with high voltage spikes and long cable runs due to its low capacitance. The PVC jacket is extremely resistant to oils (Oil Res I & II), coolants and solvents. In areas where electrical interference may be an issue, the Topflex 620 VFD is double-shielded to provide effective protection against electrical disturbances (noise) and resultant failures. The Topflex 620 VFD power cable is available in a four-conductor configuration ranging in sizes from 16 – 2 AWG. It has been rated for both 600V and 1000V applications, and can operate in varying temperature environments from -25°C to 105°C.
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.
