High efficiency drive technology for intralogistics applications

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS now offers standardised, high efficiency drive solutions especially for horizontal and inclined conveyors. LogiDrive systems are maintenance-friendly and enable reduction of the number of versions in intralogistics without great effort.

LogiDrive drive units consist of IE4 synchronous motors with rated powers up to 5.5 kW. The drives are combined with two stage bevel gear units and are therefore ideal for use in horizontal conveyor technology. The IE4 synchronous motor develops its saving potential in the partial load and partial speed ranges, which are often found in applications for intralogistics, airport technology and the food industry. Due to these characteristics, the drive systems are especially suitable for the reduction of versions, which results in further considerable reductions in the "Total Cost of Ownership" (TCO).

LogiDrive systems for intralogistics are controlled with decentralised frequency inverters , which are installed close to the motor and are therefore easily accessible. The inverters are equipped with a key switch to isolate the drive unit from the system controller and a direction selector switch for local installation mode in order to carry out maintenance work. All common field bus and industrial Ethernet interfaces are integrated into these drive units. The master switch is also located directly in the housing.

LogiDrive drive units from NORD are equipped with the safety functions STO and SS1 according to DIN EN 61800-5-2 and DIN EN 60204-1 and have a high overload capacity. As the system for conveyor technology has a modular structure, all drive technology components can be serviced individually, which reduces service and maintenance costs in intralogistics. LogiDrive drive technology is equally suitable for horizontal conveyors, inclined conveyors and vertical conveyors.
