Nord Drivesystems has equips its SK 200E inverters, which are available for installation near the motor or as motor-integrated models, with the same wide functional range as the centralized SK 500E series of cabinet-installed inverters. The decentralized frequency inverters not only provide an ample overload capacity of 200%, but also enable users to position the drive with high precision. The relative positions (incremental or endless axes) or absolute values (rotary tables / fixed, repeatable positions) can be controlled with binary values through the inverter's inputs and stored within the drive. Alternatively, they can be set via a fieldbus system. Positions can be detected via incremental encoders (an onboard referencing function is included in the inverters' basic equipment), or position values provided by a CANopen absolute encoder may be directly imported. Configuration is easy, fast, and concise. Only a few parameters need to be set for commissioning and optimization.
