NORD drive controllers featuring integrated PLC for smarter solutions

Frequency inverters from NORD Drivesystems combined with geared motors deliver
a complete intelligent system solution with the integrated PLC.

All of NORD’s distributed SK 180E and SK 200E drive controllers and
cabinet inverters SK 520E and above now offer an integrated PLC, enabling straightforward
free programming of drive-related functions according to IEC 61131-3 in ‘Structured
Text’ and ‘Instruction List’ using the free-of-charge NORD CON programming and
parameterisation tool.

With the integrated PLCs, the intelligent inverters can manage
sophisticated tasks such as autonomous process monitoring or dynamic operation
without an external controller, allowing for very economically priced
solutions.

The new-generation inverters control a wider range of motors with
support for IE4 synchronous motors currently being tested in the field. NORD’s distributed
SK 200E units not only offer outstanding functional versatility including position
control but also provide exceptional overload tolerance and are available for a
wider power range than usual in this product class up to 22 kW.

The highly compact control cabinet inverters from the SK 500E line will
be available up to size 11, with 160 kW rating, later this year.
