The Hannover Fair is the world's leading industrial exhibition. Under the motto "Get new technology first", this year, more than 5000 exhibitors are presenting their innovations, including the North German drive manufacturer NORD DRIVESYSTEMS, who will be presenting its smart solutions in Hall 15 on Stand H31. The company will also be displaying its latest technologies for the logistics industry at the CeMAT exhibition in Hall 21 on Stand C33.

The components which will be exhibited include the NORDAC LINK decentralized field distributor for applications in modern, networked intralogistics systems. This drive control for flexible close-to-the-motor installation is available as an AC vector drive (up to 10 hp) or a motor starter (up to 5 hp) and enables rapid commissioning, simple operation and maintenance. Thanks to integrated PLC and compatibility with many common bus systems, the highly flexible field distributor can be easily integrated into most modern automation systems.

Networked NORD drive units communicate their status via the control system or directly into a secure Cloud communication. Among other things, this can enable predictive and preventative maintenance – ranging from conveyor drives up to large industrial gear units. Recording of the performance data also enables continuous condition monitoring of the drives. With these features, NORD supplies intelligent drive technology for digitalized production in Industry 4.0. With the example of an industrial gear unit application, the company demonstrates possible predictive maintenance solutions especially for this group of products.

In addition to intelligent networking in drive technology, and particularly in intralogistics, special economical solutions are also often required which for example can achieve savings through a reduced number of product variants. With its LogiDrive systems, NORD provides efficient and maintenance-friendly plug&play technology. This consists of standardised versions with IE4 permanent magnet motors at rated powers of up to 7.5 hp, a two-stage helical bevel gear unit and an AC vector drive - a combination that ensures optimization of processes and costs.

You can find the intelligent drive solutions from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS at the Hannover Fair 2018 in Hall 15 on Stand H31.
