Our distributed control drive electronics are used in applications all across the world such as conveying, lifts, pumps and much more. Our distributed control drive technology is characterized by high performance and safety. No matter where in the world our drive technology moves, the quality of our solution always remains the same. Thanks to global locations on six continents we are close to our customers at all times to provide prompt service and maintenance when necessary.

Decentralized Drive Technology from NORD – Great Flexibility, Lower System Costs

With its range of frequency inverters and motor starters, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers you a wide selection of decentralized 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 solutions. In the case of motor starters, you have the choice of the freely configurable NORDAC LINK or the wear-free, flexibly integrated NORDAC START.

<h2>Features of NORD Decentralized Frequency Inverters</h2>

  • Efficiency
    Our decentralized drive technology significantly reduces the costs for your system design.
  • Versatility
    You can freely configure and optionally modify our inverters for use in many different applications.
  • Compatibility
    Through connection to common bus systems and Industrial Ethernet, our decentralized drive technology can be integrated into all automation systems.
  • 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).

<h2>How NORD Inverters Reduce Your System Costs</h2>

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, decentralized frequency inverters simplify the maintenance of the entire system and therefore increase overall efficiency.

<h2>Used in Many Applications Decentralized Drive Technology from NORD</h2>

Thanks to the large number of communication interfaces and the possibility of flexible adaptation, our decentralized 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 30 HP. These excellent features have ensured that our decentralized 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.
