Lenze Americas Plug and Drive 8400 protec frequency inverter drive is said to be ideal for decentralized applications and those requiring integrated positioning.

The Lenze 8400 protec inverter ships ready to install with innovative Plug and Drive Technology, in addition to standard mains, motor, brake and communications connectors. All terminals of the 8400 protec, ranging from the shielded motor cable to the power supply and the fieldbus link, and including the terminal for the sensors, are equipped with standardized connectors to reduce installation time and increase plant availability and productivity. Standard communication is via Profibus and Profinet with CANopen as an option.

An optional brake resistor can be integrated or externally connected. The motor connector includes a motor temperature sensor. For mains, optional energy bus (daisy chain) or 24 V internal connections are available. The Safe Torque OFF (STO) option offers drive-based safety to protect the drive and user by disabling the drive and disconnecting the power supply to the motor so the drive cannot generate torque.

The 8400 protec features straightforward diagnostics with an easy-to-read LED display, plus 18 individual LEDs indicating status, communications, safety and I/O functions. It’s equipped with L-force Engineer configuration software which enables easy commissioning and optimal control. The replaceable memory module stores all parameters for fast replacement with minimal downtime.

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.
