Cables for VFDs
VFD cables offer low capacitance, low resistance ground path, improved common-mode current containment and improved EMI/RFI shielding.
These 2,000 V cables for VFDs include classic and symmetrical
designs. The Classic design VFD cables are 14 AWG to 2 AWG with Beldfoil plus
TC Braid Shield. This series of seven cables features oversized XLPE insulation
to provide low capacitance. Highly effective dual shielding provides a low
resistance to ground path, which improves common mode current containment. The
85% braid coverage offers optimum EMI low frequency noise protection, while the
100% aluminum/Mylar tape shield offers RFI high frequency noise protection. Also
included in the smooth, round cables are full-size, insulated green ground
wires with a yellow stripe and drain wires for ease of installation and
The Symmetrical design VFD cables are large AWG (1 to 4/0),
with a spiral copper tape shield. This series of five cables combines the
benefits of Classic VFD cables with additional features for use on larger, more
powerful ac motor drives. Highly effective shielding provides a low resistance
ground path, which improves common mode current containment. Spirally-applied
dual copper tape shields provide 100% coverage, coupled with improved
flexibility and EMI/RFI noise protection. The three symmetrical bare ground
wires provide a balanced ground system to reduce the likelihood of premature
motor bearing or motor insulation failure.

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.
