LVB10 dime-sized brushless vibration motor has a 0.394-in. (10-mm) O.D. and 0.134-in. (3.4-mm) axial length, with a developed vibration force of 0.063 oz (1.8 g). Drive electronics are integrated inside the motor case with 2 leads exiting to a 3-V dc battery source. Model LBV10-003 achieves a speed of 13,500 rpm and draws a rated current of 76 mA. Motor acts as a sensor and features limited rotation. Its brushless design offers long-life operation and minimizes electrical noise in sensitive applications. Lower current model LBV10-008 develops 12,800 rpm at 62.0 mA. Applications include personal safety detectors, cell phones, and medical alert devices.

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.
