The decentralised NORDAC ON frequency inverter has been developed for horizontal conveyor technology requirements in warehousing and the NORDAC ON+ variant for interaction with the new IE5+ synchronous motor. It is characterised by an integrated Ethernet interface, its ease of maintenance through complete pluggability and an extremely compact design – providing an economical and intelligent plug-and-play solution for IIoT environments. The compact, smart frequency inverter for decentralised use can be mounted directly on the geared motor. It covers lower power ranges of up to 2.2 kW and has an energy-saving function in the partial load range.

The NORDAC FLEX SK 205E series is also ideally suited for applications in warehouse logistics. The compact, flexible and energy-efficient frequency inverter offers a wide power range of up to 22 kW and enables potential energy savings, especially during partial load operation. The inverter can be used to control standard asynchronous motors, high-efficiency synchronous motors and brake motors. It can be installed close to the drive in the field or motor-mounted. Power and data cable connections are available as plug-in versions. The decentralised system enables short motor and encoder cables as well as short supply cables to sensors. Encoder feedback can be included, for example, for position-controlled transport systems. Overall, NORD convinces with a wide range of products in the field of warehousing, including both established basics and high-efficiency products. Users benefit from tailored and reliable drive solutions which ensure an optimum system availability. The NORD modular drive system thus enables an optimum compromise between investment, operating and maintenance costs.
