Nord10619The future of production is modular, flexible and autonomous. This requires new systems with distributed intelligence that handle the growing complexity of processes. Nord Drive Systems provides a wide selection of distributed drive technology with frequency converters that can be individually adapted to any desired application and flexibly integrated in the plant field.

Decentralized drives save space in the control cabinet, reduce wiring and cabling overhead, simplify maintenance and increase the efficiency of the entire drive system. The extensive product kit decentralized drive electronics covers almost all requirements and applications. The drive components have a power range up to 22 kW, a standard integrated PLC and a high plug-in capability. They can be freely configured and adapted to any application. The decentralized drive technology can be integrated into all automation architectures and significantly reduces the costs of the system design.

The North Drives are networked, self-sufficient and scalable, providing all the necessary conditions for integration into one Industrial 4.0-Architecture. The PLC integrated in the inverter can relieve the higher-level system control and independently assume control tasks. This allows a system design with self-sufficient production groups and production islands. The freely programmable PLC processes the data of connected sensors and actuators, can initiate sequential control and transmit the drive and application data to the control center, networked components or an existing cloud. This enables continuous condition monitoring and thus lays the foundation for predictive maintenance concepts and optimized plant dimensioning.

The drive control for the variable, decentralized installation is available as a frequency converter up to 7,5 kW as well as motor starters up to 3 kW and offers fast commissioning, simple operation and maintenance. So all connections at the "Nordac Link" made via simple plug connections. Integrated maintenance switch and manual control switch for ease of use.

With its performance range up to 22kW, its wide range of functions as well as its wide range of accessories is the "Nordac Flex" the most flexible in the portfolio of the drive specialist. With easy parameter transfer via Eeprom memory, installation and maintenance are done reliably and quickly.

Thanks to their modular design, the inverters are easily expandable and offer an impressive variety of application scenarios for automation networks in the industry 4.0 era. Their areas of application range from materials handling and intralogistics to the packaging and food industry, pump applications and general mechanical engineering.

More news from Nord Drivesystems

  • Hannover Messe Hall 5, Stand D17 Nord Drivesystems presents a new universal motor in 20 variants with outputs from 0,12 to 45 kW. The engine is certified according to CE, UL, CCC, CSA, ISI and EAC. It meets the corresponding minimum efficiency requirements. It is therefore suitable for the markets in Europe, the USA, Canada, Russia, China, India and elsewhere. The engine is also certified by Bureau Veritas for shipping and offshore applications.
  • Logimat Hall 3, Stand C17; Hannover Messe Hall 5, Stand D17 Cover story No matter whether they are used in Europe, China or the USA: The cradle of every Nordac Link is in the Nord Drivesystems manufacturing plant in Aurich, East Frisia. The drive specialist started serial production of its new field distributor series Nordac Link in 2017. The comfortable drive solution for flexible, decentralized installation is manufactured at the Aurich location. A look behind the factory gates.
  • When it comes to the production and processing of thermoplastic, extrusion has established itself as the most important manufacturing process. Nord Drivesystems offers an extruder gear specially for use in extruders, which is optimized for heavy-duty use. In addition to the powerful Maxxdrive industrial gearbox, Nord also produces entire drive solutions in extruder design.
  • Logimat Hall 3, Stand C17 Nord Drivesystems goes one step further in terms of energy efficiency and presents its new IE5 + synchronous motor. The standardized geared motor variants of the Logidrive systems were specially tailored to intralogistics, parcel logistics and airport technology. These are particularly suitable for reducing variants. The compact design is space-saving. The light aluminum housing ensures a weight saving of 25%.
  • With the "Nordcon App" and the Bluetooth stick "Nordac Access BT", Nord Drivesystems has created a mobile commissioning and maintenance solution for control cabinet and frequency inverters. Both tools are used for drive monitoring on the converter from the north via dashboard, its analysis using a convenient oscilloscope function and its parameterization. In addition to the drive monitoring, the dashboard-based visualization can also be used for fault diagnosis of the frequency inverters.
  • Nord Drivesystems offers reliable drive technology for the grain industry around the world. In 2019, Lachenmeier Monsum A / S installed a grain terminal in Fredericia, DK, with a storage capacity for 40.000 tons of grain. They chose Nord as the partner for the drive solutions for operating the terminal.
  • Nord Drivesystems has optimized the design of its proven IE3 asynchronous motors. The facelift affects numerous details that further improve the function, assembly and operation of the electric motors. The electrical data and the mechanical dimensions remain unchanged with the facelift of the IE3 asynchronous motors from Nord.
  • Drives for intelligent brewing processes With this reference report, Nord Drivesystems provides an insight into recipe-controlled craft beer production on the subject of brewing processes. The brochure provides information about the drive solutions for intelligent brewing processes. Download brochure / further references and applications
  • Braubeviale Hall 7, Stand 439 trade article Nord Drivesystems presents its new synchronous motor, which combines a significant improvement in energy efficiency with the “NSD Tuph” surface finish. It is therefore suitable for the demanding environmental conditions and high hygiene requirements in beverage logistics and production. Also to be seen: the standardized drive concept for lauter tuns and the new switch cabinet converter "Nordac Pro SK 500P".
  • FMB Hall 20, Stand D2.2; SPS Hall 3A, Booth 465 trade article Nord Drivesystems presents a new IE5 synchronous motor (picture), which achieves a significant improvement in energy efficiency, a new generation of control cabinet inverters and a Profisafe module for the functional safety of machines and systems. The latest generation of energy-efficient permanent magnet synchronous motors significantly reduces losses compared to the current IE4 series.
  • Since July 2018, the sewage treatment plant ARA Chur (Switzerland) has a "Horizon" solar folding roof from DHP Technology, which enables the double use of industrial areas. Decentralized drive units from Nord Drivesystems with integrated PLC, which is controlled by weather station and algorithm, ensure the autonomous retraction and extension of the folding roofing membrane.
  • Inter Airport Europe Hall B5, Stand 1538 Nord Drivesystems presents its drive concepts for the networked airport.
