Motor-integrated servo drives
The Acoposmulti65m by B+R Automation is designed to unite motors, sensors, and servos into one compact unit. It comes with IP65 protection and is equipped with STO.
B&R Automation's Acoposmulti65m unites all of the important components such as the motor, positioning sensor (encoder), precision gearbox and servo drive into a very compact unit and is IP65 protected. Thanks to the simple electrical connection, the Acoposmulti65m supports the implementation of modular machine concepts, thus making it possible to efficiently design optimized manufacturing strategies.
By combining the latest IGBT technology and optimized motor types, users profit from the resulting maximum performance. With three different sizes, the servo actuators cover the entire spectrum, with a torque range of 1.8 to 10.5 Nm and a power range of 500 W to 2 kW. For applications that demand more power, an optional fan assembly can be retrofitted for a performance boost of up to 100%.
The Acoposmulti65m is compatible with the Acopos drive series. As a result, it is possible to utilize all of the tools and features available in Automation Studio as well as applications created therein.
In addition, it comes equipped with STO (Safe Torque Off) and SS1 safety functions in accordance with SIL 3 or PLe. Additional safety functions such as SLS, SOS, SDI, SLP and many more can be used in combination with openSafety and are an integral component of the Acoposmulti65m model.

Annual 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.
