For mobile systems such as pumps for the wine industry or cleaning machines that have a manageable structure, pumped media often places high demands on drive control. The decentralised Nordac Flex Sk 200e frequency inverter is suitable for applications such as mobile conveying or dosing in process engineering, and applications with similar requirements. This article first appeared in the October 2021 issue of Food and Drink Business.

The inverter generates the control voltage itself and can be easily and locally controlled and operated via switch and rotary potentiometer. Using the inverter’s integrated PLC, the device can perform minor logic functions autonomously. The Nordac Flex Sk 200e demonstrates its high operational flexibility particularly with saving synchronous motors such as those required for continuous operation.

Frequency inverters from the Nordac Flex series are characterised by their high precision regulation. Extending into low-speed ranges, the drive control prevents strong turbulences.

The drive systems ensure a high-resolution flow setting and at the same time can measure the density, temperature and volume of the media using external sensors.
