Model 7429AC servoamplifier uses digital PWM commands from PC-bus type motion controllers. The controllers' digital PWM commands provide direct control of motor operation. Switching action in the amplifier's power IGBT bridge circuit controls motor torque, speeds, and positioning. The amplifier develops 20A peak and ±10A continuous on ac-brushless servo motors up to 2.5 hp, and runs on 32V ac @ 50/60 Hz power. Applications include pick-and-place, automated assembly, and X-Y tables.

Using wireless chips and accessories, engineers can now extract data from the unlikeliest of places -- pumps, motors, bridges, conveyors, refineries, cooling towers, parking garages, down-hole drills and just about anything else that can benefit from monitoring.
With strong marketplace demand for qualified engineers across the board that currently outstrips the available supply, there may never be a better time for engineers and project managers to advance their careers and salaries. Whether those moves are successful in the short-term and long-term is likely to depend on how the transition from one job to the next is handled.
