Nord Drivesystems has been developing drive electronics for more than 30 years and is one of the pioneers of innovative inverter technology. With their family of NORDAC variable frequency drives (VFDs), they can provide complete drive systems that are smart, compact, and cost effective. Additions to the line include new control cabinet models, as well as new decentralized VFDs, both of which have proven to be particularly useful for intralogistics applications.
Thanks to the practical advantages of decentralized drive technology, variable frequency drives that are installed close to the motor or mounted directly on the gearbox work exceptionally well for conveyor technology. Other industries with large-scale drive systems are increasingly moving to decentralized VFDs that allow installation outside of the control cabinet to be cost-effective. In addition to being economical, the NORDAC product range is highly customizable with functionality that meets a wide variety of application demands.
Full flexibility: decentralized variable frequency drives
The robust Nordac Base VFD has been designed as an economic variant for simple decentralized drive systems, such as parcel and logistics centers. The Nordac Flex offers larger functional ranges and can be scaled to any customer application. Additionally, its extensive plug-in capability and easy parameter transfer allow for quick installation and easy maintenance. The Nordac Link Field Distribution System (FDS) raises functional ranges and interface options to a new level. These VFDs are available in three sizes (1 HP, 4 HP, and 10 HP) and can also be used as motor starters. They are flexible in configuration and function, freely configurable according to requirements and applications, and compatible with all common bus systems. In combination with an energy-efficient synchronous motor and a 2-stage helical bevel gear unit, they create the LogiDrive complete system and the basis for efficient, tailor-made drive systems for intralogistics applications.
Optimum performance in the control cabinet
Powerful control cabinet variable frequency drives are an important technology element, despite the trend towards decentralization. They can tackle high power applications within limited spaces that are housed and protected within a control cabinet. Nord Drivesystems provides the versatile and proven Nordac Pro SK 500E VFDs for control cabinet installation in 11 sizes for powers from 0.33 to 215 HP. With the new Nordac Pro SK 500P product range, Nord has launched a new generation of VFDs. The range features ultimate levels of functionality (e.g. integrated positioning function and synchronous motor operation), connectivity (with USB port, universal Ethernet interface, and others), and modularity. There are basic and advanced VFDs with optional modules for interface extensions. In addition to improved characteristics and performance features, this new generation of variable frequency drive uses the proven Nordac parameter structure and is physically and functionally downward compatible.
Nord manufactures a wide selection of gearboxes, electric motors, and drive electronics in various sizes and configurations for companies in intralogistics, food and beverage, airport baggage handling, grain, and bulk material handling, and other demanding markets. The modular design offers unlimited versatility with more than 20,000,000 combinations of custom gear motors and speed reducers—in-line or right-angle, mounted by foot or flange, featuring solid or hollow shafts—to give customers complete freedom to specify a drive system that’s perfect for the job.
