    The decentralised NORDAC ON and NORDAC ON+ frequency inverters are available for powers up to 2.6 kW, and 3 kW respectively.

Rising electricity prices, CO2 footprint and digital transformation require the use of highly efficient and powerful drives. The IE5+ synchronous motors and NORDAC ON+ frequency inverters from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS provide a solution.

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS designed the new IE5+ motor generation with a special focus on its use in the intralogistics industry as well as the food and beverage industry.

The IE5+ generation is available in both fanless and smooth versions up to a power of 4.0 kW with a continuous torque from 1.6 to 18.2 Nm and speeds from 0 to 2,100 min-1. The smooth-surface, hygienic design of the fanless variant is particularly efficient, easy to clean, corrosion-resistant and wash-down capable. It is therefore ideal for reliable use in hygienically sensitive environments.

If desired, nsd tupH surface treatment and the protection class IP69K are available. The outstanding feature of the particularly compact and energy-efficient synchronous motors is their constant high efficiency – up to 95% over a wide torque range. As a result, they also offer optimum energy consumption performance in partial load and speed ranges.

Frequency inverters for horizontal conveyor technology

The decentralised NORDAC ON frequency inverters provide an economical drive solution for a wide range of applications. They are perfectly tailored to the special requirements of horizontal conveyor technology – be it warehouse, intralogistics or food & beverage.

The series comprises three variants: NORDAC ON for the operation with IE3 asynchronous motors, NORDAC ON+ for the combination with the highly efficient IE5+ synchronous motor, and NORDAC ON PURE in wash-down design for applications in wet areas, which have to meet great demands on hygiene and cleaning. All variants are compact and powerful. They provide high functionality and – being part of the NORD modular system – can be ideally combined with the manufacturer’s geared motor portfolio.

The NORDAC ON family’s features are its integrated Ethernet interface, full pluggability and the very compact design. The communication protocols, for example Profinet, EtherNet/IP or EtherCAT, can be easily set via parameters. Firmware updates can also be implemented via Ethernet. An economic plug-and- play solution for IIoT environments The equipment also includes a diagnostic interface, M12 connections for sensors and actuators, and an additional protocol-based encoder interface that is well protected against interference.

Highly efficient synchronous drives

The decentralised NORDAC ON+ frequency inverter has been specially optimised for the combination with the IE5+ synchronous motor. As with all NORD frequency inverters, it is equipped with a powerful PLC for functions close to the drive. It can process data from connected sensors and actuators, initiate control sequences and communicate drive and application data to the control centre, networked components or to cloud storage.
