The SINAMICS DCM Base Drive, based upon the SINAMICS DC Master converter, is an extremely flexible and cost-effective solution for new machine installations and retrofits where space is limited. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.As a result of increasing demand for base drive panels using the Sinamics DC Master converter, the Sinamics DC Master (DCM) Base Drive offers end-users and third-parties such as system integrators and Siemens solution partners a pre-wired solution that comes complete and tested with all of the necessary components mounted onto a back panel. Sinamics DC Master Base Drives are an extremely flexible and cost-effective solution for new installations and retrofits where space is limited. Sinamics DC Master Base Drives offer more power per panel in the same footprint as compared to the previous two generations of base drives and are rated from 15 A-850 A continuous current. Standard features of the new Sinamics DCM Base Drive include input fuses, output dc fuses (regen only), control transformer, ac line contactors, Profibus, BOP20, UL508A Certification and 65 kA SCCR rating.

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.
