A Modular System – Many Advantages

Thanks to its scalable functions, NORD's modular system can be perfectly matched for every drive task. Our drive electronics support all common bus systems and communicate with all controllers. The POSICON positioning control offers the user an integrated positioning and synchronization mode. Functional safety is integrated thanks to STO and SS1. NORD AC vector drives also offer integrated brake rectifiers for motor brake control. An energy saving function for partial load operation as well as operating and parameter set-up tools plus a simple parameter structure complete the possibilities of our modular system.

Frequency Inverters and Motor Starters from NORD

Our electronic drive technology can be flexibly adapted to any application. It is also quick to install, easy to operate and is compatible with all common bus systems and controllers.

NORD frequency inverters and motor starters are ideal both for centralized operation in a control cabinet as well as for decentralized, fully integrated use directly on the motor. The inverters are Industry 4.0 ready, can be networked and with the internal PLC enable pre-processing of internal status data or data from externally connected sensors. This enables remote status monitoring.

<h2>Reasons for Buying NORD Frequency Inverters</h2>


Our inverters communicate via all common bus systems and can be simply integrated into any system design. Their functions and options can be customized and integrated into almost any system or machine.


The frequency inverters provide extensive integrated safety and monitoring functions.


As a NORD customer, you benefit from a wide range of services, e.g. global support for planning and commissioning of your system as well as sales partners on all continents.<br><br>

<h2>Our Frequency Inverters: Intelligent and Easy to Connect</h2>

Frequency inverters from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS are equipped with powerful processors and provide optimum control precision. Integration of the inverter into various control systems is guaranteed by a wide variety of different communication interfaces.

A great advantage for process quality is the intelligence of the systems: With the aid of the integrated PLC, the inverters can respond autonomously to changes and remedy issues independently from the system controller.

<h2>NORD Motor Starters: Quick and Robust Starting Assistance</h2>

Freely configurable and simple to install: Our NORDAC motor starters. These systems enable fully electronic, wear-free starting and are equipped with a reversing function. Motor starters from the NORDAC START series are equipped with extensive safety devices, e.g. internal motor protection and a brake rectifier to control the motor brake. Installation of a motor protection switch is therefore eliminated.<br>

Thanks to their built-in potentiometer, NORDAC START motor starters can be rapidly commissioned and are also equipped with a DIP switch for configuration.

Our motor starters from the NORDAC® LINK series can be integrated into various field bus systems. Within the NORDAC® LINK family we also offer a corresponding frequency inverter with integrated PLC, which optimally provides functions close to the drive.
