Nidec Motor Corporation has introduced the ID300 Fusion Integrated Motor Drive that features U.S. MOTORS brand 3-10HP UL-certified induction motors and customizable variable speed drives. 

With this compact all-in-one product, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) do not need to buy stand-alone products such as motors, drives, conduits and cords, and integrate them for a customer application. Nidec delivers directly from the factory a compact integrated motor and drive that is perfectly paired for use. With the ID300 Fusion, OEMs have quality products that they know and trust, along with reduced worries associated with installation and frequency issues.

Designed and engineered with Nidec’s most advanced technologies for power and control, the ID300 Fusion incorporates all of the functions of a variable frequency drive (VFD) into the motor for better system performance and efficiency. The ID300 Fusion, backed by Nidec’s substantial resources, offers new levels of technology, security and convenience for OEMs and end users.

A global leader in the design and manufacture of electric motors and VFDs, Nidec has worked closely with OEMs to utilize VFDs to meet Federal energy requirements and satisfy customer needs. With Nidec’s investment and support, the electronics manufacturing technology has made tremendous advancements that have enabled the highly reliable fusion of the motor and drive. The evolution of the system architecture has paved the way for exciting innovations such as the ID300 Fusion.

The integrated ID300 Fusion provides superior control and monitoring capabilities that help with real-time pump management and intelligence analytics. The product features a powerful suite of development tools, backed by experienced application engineers in the Nidec Motor Technical Center. 

With pumping applications in mind, the ID300 Fusion allows OEMs to embed the pump curve information into the drive so that the pump runs at its best efficiency point without an external sensor. That saves the cost of the sensor, the labor to install it, and also minimizes the risk of error if the drive is incorrectly programmed for the sensor. An onboard programmable logic controller (PLC) can regulate the pressure (constant pressure/variable flow). When programmed with the pump curve, the ID300 PLC can perform sensor-less constant pressure control, eliminating sensor cost and simplifying its installation and commissioning. One ID300 Fusion can control up to three additional constant speed backup pumps.

In addition to the operational benefits of the ID300 Fusion, its small modular design takes up less space than separate products. Its compactness also makes it easier and quicker to install into other existing control systems. Built and tested to withstand harsh environments, the product offers a 24-month warranty from the date of installation or 30 months from the manufacturing date, whichever comes first.

Having a workforce that’s well trained on current technologies and equipment is critical for any manufacturer. When workers lack necessary skill sets, they are more likely to make expensive mistakes that result in costly downtime. Without proper training, employees are also less productive and have lower job satisfaction. They often feel as though they aren’t moving forward in their career and get discouraged. In addition, the correlation between well-trained workers and a safer manufacturing environment shouldn’t be overlooked.

Clearly, the importance of industrial training must be a key consideration for employers. Unfortunately, developing a workforce with necessary knowledge isn’t always easy. A variety of factors are creating a serious skills gap, and many companies are struggling to find ways to address the challenges.

What drives the requirement for accurate, high-quality labels? With so much hanging in the balance for manufacturers and retailers competing on a global scale, there's no good reason to ignore the need for label quality. Mislabeled packaging could have consequences that range from wasted product to (potentially severe) consumer health issues.

Let's take a look at four major areas that illustrate the importance of ensuring the accuracy and legibility of product and packaging labels and discuss a solution that can help avoid errors.

Area 1: General product traceability

Product traceability, in a general sense, is essential for consumer safety, regulatory compliance and overall quality perception. If there’s a problem with a product, traceability allows the consumer, retailer or another entity to quickly locate and segregate defective products in the event of a recall.
