More communications options
for frequency inverter range
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS expands
Ethernet communications options
with POWERLINK and Ethernet/IP
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has expanded the Ethernet communications options for its wide range of frequency inverters as POWERLINK is made available for the centralized SK 500E and EtherNet/IP is added to the SK 500E as well as the decentralized motor-mounted SK 180E and SK 200E inverters. Offered as drive-integrated or separate modular Technology Units, these protocols join Profinet and EtherCAT communications options and other fieldbus systems including CANopen, Profibus and DeviceNET for complete flexibility in the choice of automation system design.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS frequency inverter solutions are based on cost effective and scalable equipment options that begin with basic entry level drives from 0.75 to 90kW power output with a comprehensive choice of expansion possibilities that add communication, position feedback, PLC programming, safety, I/O expansion and many other functions to exactly match the application requirements. In this way, simple sensorless speed control or complex multi axis servo positioning systems with IEC 61131-3 functionality and SIL Safety can be realised with the same modular hardware, software, parameter structure, and commissioning requirements; for complete consistency.
