Brushless DC motors with EtherCAT
Dunkermotoren's compact brushless DC servo motors now offers EtherCAT interface on all of its BG45, BG65, BG65S and BG75 base models and feature CANopen over EtherCAT (CoE) compatibility.
Dunkermotoren's compact brushless DC servo motors now offers EtherCAT interface on all of its BG45, BG65, BG65S and BG75 base models. Available motors range from 50W to 500W of power in 45mm to 75mm square frame sizes and feature CANopen over EtherCAT (CoE) compatibility. This feature combines the benefits of CANopen’s standardized DS402 motion profile with EtherCAT’s real-time high performance fieldbus.
The all-in-one motor plus drive design eliminates the need for external drives and numerous cables, improving dependability and overall performance, while dramatically reducing commissioning time and total system cost.
In addition, Dunkermotoren’s modular system offers high-quality planetary and worm gearboxes, integral or connected absolute encoders, and brake options to further advance the cost effectiveness of its motion solutions for original equipment manufacturers. Markets served by the new series include factory automation, semiconductor and renewal energy.

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.
