This drive system is optimised for applications used in conveyor and handling technology. With the help of the modular LogiDrive system, a suitable drive solution can be designed for all common intralogistics tasks – on the basis of only three sizes.

The new NORDAC LINK family of decentralised drive electronics is the optimum answer to the evolution of control architectures – from the automation pyramid to an intelligent automation network. With a PLC integrated into the NORD frequency inverter, application-specific functions close to the drive unit can be efficiently programmed and parameterised in the same way as other frequency inverter functions. Intelligent drives are an integral part of the automation network. They continuously log drive and application data and evaluate all available data from sensors and actuators. The collected data are then processed and evaluated locally by the integrated PLC. The intelligent drive transmits all relevant data to the control level and other components in the network. On this basis, the intelligent drive operates independently from a higher-level control system so that it is able to initiate control of sequences and movement autonomously and respond appropriately at any time. At the 2017 Technical Press Days which took place at the Hotel Hafen Hamburg, specialist automation industry journalists learned that NORD DRIVESYSTEMS successfully provided NORDAC LINK series drives for various projects, e.g. for baggage sorting systems, automated warehouses and parcel distribution centres.
