Yaskawa's P1000 variable-speed drive provides control for variable-torque loads through 500 hp and up to 1000 hp through planned expansion.
Yaskawa’s P1000 variable-speed drive provides simple, reliable, cost-effective control for variable-torque loads through 500 hp and planned expansion through 1000 hp later this year. Specific application features, energy savings, and network connectivity make the P1000 a great choice for industrial fans and pumps. User-friendly configuration tools, including a multi-language LCD display with a real-time clock, parameter storage, fan and pump application presets, and a portable USB copy unit make programming and configuration simple. DriveWizard computer software delivers configuration, monitoring, and trending functions enhanced by direct connectivity through the P1000’s standard USB port. For applications requiring more functionality, the P1000 offers three expansion ports for additional I/O, feedback, and network communications, including DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP/IP, Profibus-DP, PROFINET, BACnet, and Lonworks. The P1000 drive is available in 200 to 240 Vac 3-phase 50/60 Hz (up to 175 hp), 380 to 480 Vac 3-phase 50/60 Hz (up to 500 hp), and 500 to 600 Vac 3-phase 50/60Hz (up to 250 hp) ratings.

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.
