NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers intelligent drive technology, energy-efficient solutions as well as a comprehensive range of service and maintenance offers.
The decentralised drive systems form master-slave groups which intelligently communicate with each other so that they can autonomously monitor and control particular sections of plant. For example, if a blockage occurs, this is detected and automatically remedied if possible. If this is not possible, the blockage is reported to the central control unit and a networked replacement drive is started.
Through integration of the PLC into the frequency inverter, NORD drive units can record the drive and application data and evaluate all of the available sensor and actuator data as the basis for condition monitoring. Together with the customer, NORD can also develop predictive maintenance solutions for predictable and therefore plannable maintenance of the drive units. The objective of these algorithms is to reduce unscheduled downtimes, lower service and maintenance costs and to increase the service life of the drive unit.
The powerful, energy-saving NORD motors have high efficiencies and therefore enable significant savings in operating costs. In particular, IE4 synchronous motors meet the most stringent efficiency regulations – including in the partial load and low speed ranges, thanks to PMSM technology. NORD frequency inverters also ensure energy-efficient operation. They are equipped with energy-saving functions and can automatically adapt motor powers to the actual requirements in case of fluctuating loads.
