Drive Electronics: Our Expertise – Your Safety

NORD's Decentralised Drive Electronics are present in numerous applications worldwide. Our innovative inverters with integrated PLC perform functions close to the motor unit and reduce the load on the higher level control system. More than 100 industrial sectors benefit from our solutions. For example in intralogistics where baggage items or parcels are transported across continents. Our Frequency Inverters are likewise used in general conveyor technology, in the packaging industry, or in pump applications. Well-known foodstuffs and beverage bottling customers also rely on drive electronics supplied by NORD DRIVESYSTEMS.

Our Decentralised Drive Electronics is characterised by high performance and safety. No matter where in the world our drive technology moves: the quality of our solutions always remains at a high level. Thanks to locations on all continents we are close to our customers at all times and provide services without long waiting times.

Decentralised Drive Technology from NORD – great flexibility, low system costs

With its range of Frequency Inverters and Motor Starters, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers you a wide selection of Decentralised Drive Technology. For example, our NORDAC LINK and NORDAC FLEX-Inverters can be individually adapted to your application. On the other hand, NORDAC BASE is the best choice for simple drive tasks. In the case of Motor Starters, you have the choice of the freely configurable NORDAC LINK or the wear-free, flexibly integratable NORDAC START.

Four good reasons for Decentralised Frequency Inverters from NORD

  • Efficiency
    Our Decentralised Drive Technology significantly reduces the costs for your system design.
  • Versatility
    You can freely configure or optionally extend our inverters for use in many different fields of application.
  • Compatibility
    Through connection to common bus systems and Industrial Ethernet, our Decentralised Drive Technologycan be integrated into all automation architectures.
  • User-friendly
    Thanks to simple plug-in connections, the optional integrated maintenance switch and local manual control, installation and maintenance can be quickly carried out (NORDAC LINK).

How NORD inverters reduce your system costs
The PLC which is integrated into our inverters enables a system design which consists of autonomous production islands, which to a large extent control their processes themselves. This not only reduces the load on the higher level controller, but also eliminates investments for control cabinet installation and expensive wiring. In addition, Decentralised Frequency Inverters simplify the maintenance of the entire system and therefore increase its efficiency.

Used in many applications Decentralised Drive Technology from NORD
Thanks to the large number of communication interfaces and the possibility of flexible combination, our Decentralised Frequency Inverters are ideal for a wide range of applications. Our inverters impress not only with the versatility of their functions and options, but also with powers of up to 22 kW. These excellent features have ensured that our Decentralised Inverters have been used for decades in many areas, e.g. in the food industry and the steel industry, in airport technology, intralogistics or bulk material handling applications.
