Logistics BusinessNord presents innovative drive technology at FMB 2021

From 10th to 12th November 2021, the FMB trade fair once again brings together machine manufacturers and their suppliers. Nord Drivesystems will be on site as an exhibitor (booth 20-D2.2) in Bad Salzuflen (North Rhine-Westphalia) presenting the innovative DuoDrive geared motor, the energy-efficient IE5+ synchronous motor, the new decentralised NORDAC ON frequency inverter as well as the NORDAC PRO SK 500P control cabinet inverter.

The new DuoDrive: Gear unit and motor combined

The patent-pending DuoDrive is a groundbreaking innovation: The innovative geared motor integrates the high-efficiency IE5+ synchronous motor into a single-stage helical gear unit housing and sets new standards with regard to performance, installation space and version reduction.

Thanks to its optimised system efficiency, high power density, compact housing dimension and very low noise emissions, it is a real game-changer. Elimination of many wearing parts results in lower maintenance. In combination with the simple commissioning of the complete solution via plug-and-play, this results in a significant decrease of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to existing drive systems.

The IE5+ motor generation sets standards

Considerably lower losses than the IE4 series: The energy-efficient IE5+ permanent magnet synchronous motors achieve their high efficiency that, at times, is significantly above efficiency class IE5 via a wide torque range – and is optimally suitable for operation in the partial load range. The new IE5+ motors are equally interesting for both intralogistics and hygiene-sensitive areas in food and pharmaceutical industries.

The new motor is available in ventilated or smooth versions up to a power of 4.0 kW. The IE5+ synchronous motors can be combined with all gear units and drive electronics from Nord Drivesystems in a modular system. If required, they are provided with a very smooth surface or the nsd tupH surface treatment.

Smart frequency inverter for IIoT applications

Another new product is the decentralised NORDACON frequency inverter. It is characterised by an integrated Ethernet interface, full pluggability as well as a very compact design while providing an economic plug-and-play solution for IIoT environments.

The frequency inverter can be mounted directly on the drive housing and covers lower power ranges of up to 1.0kW. NORDAC ON was designed for use with asynchronous motors, whereas NORDAC ON+ is intended to be combined with synchronous motors, and supplements the NORD high-efficiency portfolio around the new IE5+ motor generation.

Optimum performance in the control cabinet

NORDAC PRO SK 500P frequency inverters are equipped with an integrated multi-protocol Ethernet interface, a multi-encoder interface for multiple axis operation and a USB interface for voltage-free parameterisation. The variety of interfaces and functions is characteristic: Various inverter versions can be optimally allocated to various application requirements.

Plug-in control, safety and option modules ensure maximum flexibility and the compact book-size design format enables space-saving installation in control cabinets. Perfect for every application.
