Demonstrating extensive know-how in application-specific motor manufacturing for industrial use and beyond, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS showcased a range of configurations at Hannover Messe 2015. The cutaway model of an IE2 motor demonstrated constructive options and possible features for low-temperature environments down to -40 °C.

These include an encapsulated motor terminal box, a standstill heater, and increased protection for bearings, windings, stator, and rotor. A NORDBLOC.1 helical geared motor was displayed with “increased safety” (Ex e) explosion protection. It is significantly lighter and costs up to 40% less than alternative drives with “flame-proof encapsulation” (Ex de). Additionally, NORD exhibited industry-specific accessories: an IE2 motor, for instance, is equipped with a protective cover and a special textile fan cowl that prevents the build-up of fibers. Alongside wide-ranging solutions for the manufacturing and process industries, NORD has been configuring drives for non-industrial applications for many years, building up extensive expertise. One case in point is stage machinery. Options for theater motors include double brakes to implement full redundancy in line with high safety standards. Brakes are also available with manual release to enable full control with no need to dismantle the unit during power failures.
