Servo2Go.com announces the release of the Dzralte Series of High Performance Digital Servo Drives from Advanced Motion Controls of Camarillo, CA, which are engineered to conquer the most demanding industrial applications.

DZRALTE Series High Performance Digital Servo Drives, Courtesy: Advanced Motion ControlsThe Dzralte Series are digital servo drives that control brushed and brushless servomotors in a compact form factor which make them ideal for embedded applications. These fully digital drives operate in torque, velocity, or position mode and employ Space Vector Modulation (SVM) which results in higher bus voltage utilization and reduced heat dissipation compared to traditional PWM drives. The command source can be generated internally or can be supplied externally.  In addition to motor control, these drives feature dedicated and programmable digital and analog inputs and outputs to enhance interfacing with external controllers and devices.

The Dzralte Series feature a RS-232 interface for drive configuration and setup as well as a RS-485 interface for drive networking.  All drive and motor parameters are stored in non-volatile memory.  Drive commissioning is accomplished using AMC’s powerful & user friendly free DriveWare software.

The combination of a DigiFlex Performance DZRALTE servo drive with its DriveWare software establishes a new benchmark in versatility!  Capabilities built into the Dzralte servo drives include:

· Size range:  10-175 V dc Input, 6 A cont.(60A peak) at 10-175 V dc output models

· Full tuning control of all three servo loops: Position, velocity and torque

· Real-time oscilloscope with up to 8 channels to ensure that tuning achieves the highest performance

· Status window with over 50 simultaneous channels for drive and system diagnostics

· I/O configuration configurable to latch/non-latch as well as active-high and active-low

· Universal servo motor compatibility by means of automatic commutation adjustment

· Dual Loop Feedback - Increases both stability and accuracy

Annual Salary Survey

Participate in the 2013 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.
