The NORDCON APP for mobile maintenance and commissioning of NORD frequency inverters is proving its worth in practical applications. It enables diagnosis, analysis, parameterisation and monitoring of NORD drive systems using a mobile terminal device for servicing. The NORDAC ACCESS BT is a Bluetooth stick that is used directly with the frequency converter – this ensures convenient mobile access to the drive data while at the same time full access control.In a pilot project, for example, an automatic cattle brush has been realised for an agricultural enterprise. There, the inverter PLC controls a geared motor in automatic reversing operation and integrates a vibration sensor. The app was very helpful for commissioning and fine tuning the system that has been installed several metres above and inside the animals' livestock area. Visitors and guests at NORD exhibition stands and ideas forums have already taken the opportunity to test the system’s intuitive operation. They provided valuable hints for the system's optimisation and future enhancements. The field test phase has recently been successfully completed. The NORDCON APP is now available in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

The NORDCON APP and NORDAC ACCESS BT are available for all NORD drive electronics and can be used with decentralised frequency inverters as well as control cabinet solutions and with optional modules.
