IE5+ Synchronous Motors – NORD’s newest generation of smooth body motors are characterized by their extremely high IE5+ efficiency rating. These motors focus on maximizing efficiency, with a compact footprint that can be installed quicky and easily, even in small spaces. With these motors, operators can experience energy savings, reduce system variants, and minimize operating costs for their applications, especially when operating at partial loads and low speeds.


Key Advantages:

  • Variant reduction due to constant torque over wide speed range
  • Compact size at 9'' and 15.4 lbs. providing 0.5 – 1.5 HP in a single motor frame
  • Compatible with all gear units and cabinet or wall-mounted VFDs from the NORD modular system
  • Flexible mounting options: Direct, NEMA, IEC
  • Reduced Total Cost of Ownership and fast Return on Investment
  • nsd tupH Sealed Surface Conversion or IP69K optional (as gearmotor solution) for hygienic and/or wash-down applications


Condition Monitoring for Predictive Maintenance – NORD’s new Condition Monitoring solution helps maintain machines and plants proactively to reduce downtimes and increase overall efficiency. It provides real- or near-real-time drive and status data which is recorded and analyzed periodically or continuously to optimize operational performance and safety. This drive status data is stored on a local industrial PC which can then be transferred and summarized on a remote dashboard.


Key Advantages:

  • Detection and avoidance of impermissible operating states at an early stage
  • Status-oriented maintenance instead of time-based maintenance
  • Scheduled machinery and plant downtimes based on real drive and process data
  • Reduction of service and material costs
  • Longer service life of components and machinery
  • Predictable and cost-optimized repairs


NORDAC PRO SK 500P – The NORDAC PRO SK 500P is the latest product to join NORD’s family of drive control electronics. It is especially well-suited to handle the requirements of Logistics operations with high-power density and an intuitive parameter structure that is designed for compatibility. The NORDAC PRO SK 500P is extremely intelligent and uses modern connectivity such as the use of an SD memory card as a storage medium for parameters, firmware, and operating data, as well as a USB interface which enables parameterization of the VFD when the power is switched off. An optional Bluetooth interface adds additional operating convenience.


Key Advantages:

  • Compact design in book-size format for space-saving installation in control cabinets
  • 2 versions: machine inverter and application inverter
  • Multiple control terminal connections for digital and analog signals
  • Integrated Industrial Ethernet connection, can be set to PROFINET, EtherNET/IP, POWERLINK or EtherCAT via parameters
  • Optional control unit extension with display


NORD manufactures a wide selection of gear units, electric motors, and drive electronics in various sizes and configurations for Intralogistics, Warehousing, Food & Beverage, Packaging, Bulk Material Handling, and other demanding markets.
