The MR-J3-xA-RJ158, offered as part of the Melservo MR-J3 family, is an AC servo drive designed to provide users with connectivity to Mitsubishi Electric high-performance servo amplifiers over EtherCAT communication. It connects with the MR-J3-T04 unit that is part of the required construct for the EtherCAT solution, and also houses the EtherCAT interface RJ45 connectors. With this solution, Mitsubishi Electric offers connectivity to EtherCAT master controllers over CANopen or CoE protocols along with the CiA402 drive profile application communication.

The line is designed for packaging, material handling, textile, machine tooling, printing and automotive applications, and leverages Mitsubishi Electric’s best-in-class servo amplifier performance. Enterprises that require the open EtherCAT network can now connect with the MR-J3 series’ machine analyzer and simulation, advanced gain search, vibration suppression control and auto tuning functions, among others

The EtherCAT amplifier has a capacity ranging from 100W to 22kW. These amplifiers will be able to drive the MR-J3 servomotors, which are equipped with built-in absolute high precision 18bit (262,155 pls/rev) standard. In addition to being compact and offering superb controllability, certain models also allow for up to 350 percent torque overload during acceleration and deceleration periods.

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.
