Intelligent solutions, industrial gear units, drive electronics and high efficiency IE5+ motors

Date 03.02.2020

From 20 to 24 April 2020, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will be presenting intelligent drive systems and innovative solutions for all industry sectors at the Hanover Fair. The latest energy-efficient IE5+ synchronous motors, SK 500P control cabinet inverters, condition monitoring concepts and the high-performance NORD industrial gear units are the most important topics.

The standardised geared motor variants of the LogiDrive systems from NORD are specially designed for industry sectors like intralogistics and are particularly suitable for reducing the number of versions. The compact design saves space and the lightweight aluminium housing enables weight savings of up to 25%. LogiDrive drive units comprise an IE4 synchronous motor with rated powers of up to 5.5 kW, a 2-stage helical bevel gear unit and a NORDAC LINK frequency inverter to be installed close to the motor. With motor efficiency class IE4 and system efficiency class IES2, the drive units achieve excellent efficiencies – especially in the partial load and speed range. At the Hanover Fair, NORD will be presenting the LogiDrive concept, also in combination with an energy-efficient latest generation IE5+ permanent magnet synchronous motor that has considerably lower losses than the current IE4 series. The compact and unventilated smooth surfaced motor achieves its high efficiency, which at times is significantly above efficiency class IE5, over a wide torque range, making it optimally suitable for intralogistics applications and operation in the partial load range.

Condition monitoring for predictive maintenance

The frequency inverters from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS regularly or permanently record drive and status data in order to optimise the operational safety and efficiency of machines and plants. Based on this information, concepts for predictive maintenance can also be developed. Fast, efficient and comprehensive evaluation of analogue and digital data (measurements, signals and operating parameters) by the intelligent PLC in the drive electronics forms the basis. The objective of predictive maintenance is to maintain machines and plants proactively and to detect changes at an early stage, to reduce downtimes and to increase the efficiency of the entire plant. NORD DRIVESYSTEMS uses a drive-based approach where intelligent algorithms and virtual sensors transfer information from condition monitoring to predictive maintenance. An example is the sensorless determination of the optimum oil change time based on the oil temperature.

Industrial gear units: Reliable under tough conditions

MAXXDRIVETM industrial gear units by NORD DRIVESYSTEMS are characterised by high power density, quiet operation and top reliability. Large rolling bearings ensure extremely high axial and radial load capacities and a long service life. The technological heavyweight drives also offer a modular, flexible design as well as varied mounting options. This makes the robust helical and bevel gear units in one-piece UNICASE housings ideal for a great number of heavy-duty applications. On the basis of the industrial gear units, NORD plans complete drive systems for heavy-duty operation with motors and drive electronics, for tasks including conveyor technology, pumps and agitators. The 2-stage MAXXDRIVE® XT Right-Angle Gear Unit are the strongest NORD industrial gear units. They are specially designed for applications that require low-speed ratios in combination with high powers. In Hanover, the complete range of NORD industrial gear units will be in display.

NEW: You can find NORD at the Hanover Fair in Hall 5 on Stand D17.

The new IE5+ synchronous motor from NORD offers a high power density and raises the LogiDrive concept for intralogistics to a new level with regard to reduction of versions and energy efficiency.

Condition monitoring for predictive maintenance: The drive-based approach from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS significantly improves operational safety and efficiency of plant and machinery.
