VFD cables reduce EMI
Cables minimize capacitance, improve common mode current containment.
Belden has expanded its line of VFD cables with the addition of 2,000 V designs with improved EMI characteristics. The company says this series features oversized XLPE insulation to provide the lowest capacitance available in a VFD cable.
Highly effective dual shielding provides low resistance to ground path, which improves common mode current containment. The 85% braid coverage offers optimum EMI low frequency noise protection, while the 100% aluminum/Mylar tape shield offers RFI high frequency noise protection. Also included in the smooth, round cables are full-size, insulated green ground wires with a yellow stripe and drain wires for ease of installation and termination.
All of Belden's new 2,000 V UL 1277 Type TC-ER cables are UL rated for direct burial, feature black sunlight- and oil-resistant PVC jackets, and meet all applicable industry standards and specifications for VFD cables.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
