NORDCON is the operating software for controlling, programming and diagnosis of all NORD AC Vector Drives. NORD does not charge additional for this software.

Interface Connection
Connecting a NORD AC Vector Drive to a PC/laptop is the most effective way to control your drive. Connection is accomplished via the RS232 diagnostic interface on top of the AC drive. The cable does not come standard and is an available option. A 10ft. sub D to RJ12 connector cable must be ordered separately. (Part #278 910 240)

The AC Vector Drive can be manually operated by means of a software window with all of the operating elements of a control box. An enable signal with specification of setpoint values can be given. The parameter settings can be adjusted and read. Parameters (information and error message) can be viewed. Users therefore have a supporting aid for each commissioning.

With a convenient overview, users can view and adjust each available parameter. BY means of a print option, complete parameter lists, or lists of the changed values, can be created. The finished data sets can be save on the PC/laptop and archived for future use.

The NORDCON oscilloscope function is a simple but very useful tool for the optimal adjustment of drive systems. By means of line graphs, all drive characteristics (current, torque, etc.) can be recorded and analyzed. Witdh these results, application-relevant settings can be fine-tuned to enable optimum operation. This is useful, e.g., for regulating the brake control or for lifting gear functions.
