Switching servo drives deliver sub-nanometer position jitter
ACS Motion Control's NanoPWM delivers sub-nanometer position jitter performance and are included with an EtherCAT motion controller and power supply.
ACS Motion Control's switching NanoPWM servo drive delivers sub-nanometer position jitter performance and nanometers following errors when moving at low velocities. The NanoPWM switching PWM servo drives are designed for applications like display handling and inspection machinery. The NanoPWM drives are available as part of ACS' MC4U Control Modules complete solutions that includes also an EtherCAT Motion Controller and power supply. The NanoPWM drive operates from 100 V and delivers up to 15/3 0A (Cont./Peak) of current.

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.
