Nord Drivesystems has expanded its NORDAC PRO inverter family to include sizes with powers of up to 22 kW. All five sizes in the product series have an integrated multi-protocol Ethernet interface and a slim, compact design.
The NORDAC PRO inverter family provides a wide variety of interfaces and functions in one product series. The integrated multi-protocol Ethernet interface allows communication via the protocols Profinet, EtherCAT, EtherNET/IP or Ethernet POWERLINK. The compact design in book-size format enables space-saving installation in control cabinets.
The three established sizes or power classes are now supplemented to include two models for power outputs from 7.5 to 11 kW and 15 to 22 kW. This means that more powerful applications are made possible, such as in intralogistics, post and parcel or the food industry. “With the additional sizes, we offer a further expansion of our comprehensive portfolio of ideally matched drive solutions,” Jörg Niermann, head of marketing at Nord Drivesystems, emphasises.
What characterises all sizes is a high overload capability, ease of parametrisation via a Bluetooth interface and suitability for operation of synchronous as well as asynchronous motors. Plug-in control and option modules ensure maximum flexibility. Additionally, even the basic version of the NORDAC PRO SK 500P device family offers high-quality connection and functional features such as CANopen interface, brake chopper, PLC function and POSICON positioning control. Furthermore, the safety functions STO (Safe Torque Off) and SS1 (Safe Stop 1) can be integrated.
Compared to previous generation cabinet-mounted frequency inverters, the new inverters enable a significant reduction of device versions, which brings a clear efficiency advantage, especially for large-scale systems. At the same time, the NORDAC PRO SK 500P inverters offer a wider and even better quality range of functions.
In addition to improved characteristics and performance features, the new inverter generation uses the proven NORDAC parameter structure and is physically and functionally downward compatible. “We are successively expanding the family further,” explains Niermann, “so that NORDAC PRO devices will be available for all power ranges in the coming years.”
