Quick release mechanism protects against vibration shakeout
Speed Connect from Siemens Industry Inc. protects against vibration shakeout on its Motion-Connect line of power and signal cables.
Siemens Industry, Inc. has announced the introduction of Speed Connect, a new quick release mechanism that protects against vibration shakeout on its Motion-Connect line of power and signal cables. Motion-Connect cables are offered as standard on all Siemens motion control systems.
The Speed Connect release makes installation and changeover, even in very restricted space applications, fast and easy. No tools are required; just a one-quarter turn locks or unlocks the bayonet-style connectors.
All Siemens Motion-Connect cables are system-tested to guarantee optimum performance in any motion control system, whether in a Sinumerik CNC machine tool or Simotion general motion control application. These cables are also compatible with Sinamics drive systems and all families of Siemens induction, direct drive and servomotors. Motion-Connect cables are fully shielded to prevent EMC noise emissions and protect the motion control system from ambient environmental noise. Motion-Connect cables are certified to CE, VDE, UL and UL/CSA standards.

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.
