New from NORD: Electronic variable speed drives

As well as variable speed V-belt drives, you can now also obtain electronic variable speed drives from NORD, which consist of a frequency inverter from the SK200E or SK180E series, a premium efficient AC motor, and a NORD gearbox.

We supply our electronic variable speed drives ready for installation with all of the desired options. The drive is already parameterized to the particular type of motor. You simply need to make adjustments such as the ramp time, minimum/maximum frequency or restrictions to the direction of rotation.

We can also provide fully parameterized drives on request. For this, we load a data record which you provide into the frequency inverter after completion of standard tests.
