Industry 4.0: Intelligent and Energy-Efficient Drives

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS equips its drive electronics with decentralized intelligence to take the load off a higher-level control unit and ensure optimal service. However, user-friendliness and energy efficiency are increasingly moving into the spotlight.

"Our customers expect an intelligent, energy-balanced system", NORD Managing Director Dr. Omar Sadi recently said in an interview. "Therefore drive solutions must be Industry 4.0 compatible and manufacturers must develop their expertise especially in electronics and software."

NORD offers extensive knowledge and experience in gear units, motors and frequency inverters. Its long history of application experience allowed the company to expand its portfolio and produce intelligent, user-friendly drive solutions. This includes self-sufficient drive electronics with integrated PLCs that undertake decentralized control tasks. NORD would also like to improve the operation and servicing of its products and is working on an app that, among other things, would support drive parameter setting. Additionally, the company is optimizing its synchronous and asynchronous motors to achieve even higher energy efficiency ratings (IE3/4/5). The higher IES0, IES1 and IES2 system efficiencies according to EN 50598-2 are also being considered in this effort.
