Available in a wide range of performance grades and with many upgrade options, SK 200E series frequency inverters from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS allow users to select customized solutions with features and costs that are tailored to their specific requirements. They are offered in size 1 to 4 with a performance between 0.25 and 22 kW, cost-efficiently covering distributed applications ranging from simple control tasks to complex positioning. Expansion options include external braking resistors and a separate 24 V power supply for stand-alone control voltage operation. Furthermore, I/O modules allow for the detection and transfer of sensor and actuator signals as well as communication interfaces (with and without I/Os) for CANopen, DeviceNet, Profibus, PROFINET and EtherCAT. Expansion options are available either externally or as internal modules, which extend the functional range without altering inverter’s dimensions. Allowing PC connection via a USB port, the ParameterBox with a control panel and a plain text display enables control, configuration and diagnostics. The SimpleBox with a control panel with a 4-digit, 7-segment display can also be used for quick configuration and diagnostics.
