The new NORD Drivesystems IE5+ motor generation combines the advantages of a modular system and opportunities for version reduction, making a useful contribution to reducing the total cost of ownership.

The IE5+ motor was designed with a special focus on the intralogistics sector and food and beverage industry. It is available in three versions: an unventilated smooth surfaced motor, a ventilated motor with cooling fins, and as an integrated motor in the new, patented NORD DuoDrive.

The compact and energy-efficient synchronous motors have high efficiency over a wide torque range, with optimum energy consumption performance in partial load and partial speed ranges.

The constant torque over a large speed range allows a targeted version reduction. This minimises administrative costs, and enables streamlined production, logistics, storage, and service processes.

Utilising the high overload capacity of the motors and the system’s wide adjustment range, the solution is individually tailored to each customer and specifically designed for the system’s individual load range.

Besides version reduction and higher energy efficiency the use of IE5+ technology is also notable for the motor’s small size and their being compact, plug-in capable, and configurable via plug-and-play.
