Total Cost of Ownership

Our goal is to reduce our customer's Total Cost of Ownership. These include all costs associated with the purchase, operation, and recycling of a drive system. NORD's extensive customization leads to variant reduction at purchase. With the help of efficient drive solutions from NORD, energy costs incurred can then be reduced significantly. In addition, our online tools facilitate spare part management for relevant industries.

Our high-efficiency motors are equipped with effective PMSM technology. Here, a stator similar to an asynchronous motor’s stator is used whilst the rotor is equipped with permanent magnets. The standard asynchronous motor options can still be used: the terminal box and connection terminals are identical and the motors have no load-dependent slip. This efficient technology prevents excessive efficiency losses in the partial load range.

Cost Reduction

Synchronous motors reveal their full potential in applications with a partial load and low speed ranges. Systems, such as baggage handling and post and parcel processing, can achieve significant cost savings through the use of synchronous motors.

High cost reductions are achieved over the entire product life cycle. However, they only have a short payback period thanks to low additional investment requirements.

PMSM means energy efficiency:

  • Compliance to the highest efficiency regulations
  • Significant TCO reduction
  • High efficiency at partial load and low speed ranges

High-Efficiency IE4 Motors

The IEC 60034-30 standard defines the efficiency requirements for IE4 motors by way of efficiency data. Correspondingly high levels of efficiency are guaranteed by synchronous motors from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS based on permanent magnet technology. NORD supplies synchronous motors with frame heights from 3-4 in and power ratings up to 7.5 HP.

The new generation of NORD IE5+ synchronous motors is manufactured in-house for use in intralogistics as well as in the food and beverage industry. Our motors feature a compact and hygienic design built for high corrosion resistance and easy cleaning. They are compatible with all gear units and frequency inverters from the NORD modular system.
