Nord Drivesystems is introducing a new Bluetooth stick applicable to all of its drives, which offers mobile access to drive data and full access control for improved communications and safety.

The Nordac Access BT was designing with IIoT technologies in mind and can be used to save parameter data without using an app or a PC.

“Using the BT-stick, users can transfer parameters from one frequency inverter to another. Parameter transfer between a drive and a PC is also possible,” said Nord project engineer Delfio Barbarino.

The new product further features dashboard-based visualisation for drive monitoring and fault diagnosis, as well as oscilloscope function for drive analysis which can be individually configurable, and aims to simplify maintenance so faults can be solved faster.

Barbarino said the Nordac Access BT received praise around the world and he believes that locally, the reception will be similar.

“We look forward to the official launch of this ground-breaking product in the coming months and to rolling it out in our region,” he said.
