Mobile commissioning and service solution for all NORD drives

  • Dashboard-based visualisation for drive monitoring and fault diagnosis
  • Parameterisation with help function and rapid access to parameters
  • Individually configurable oscilloscope function for drive analysis
  • Backup and recovery function for dimple handling of drive parameters




Cost savings through reduction of geared motor versions

LogiDrive is an energy efficient, service-friendly and standardised solution for intralogistics and airport applications. Application optimisation minimises the number of geared motor versions required for the task, achieving considerable savings for spare part stocks. Installation of the NORD LINK field distributor close to the motor, in combination with plug-and-play technology enables a high level of service and maintenance-friendliness for our products.

NORDAC LINK  field distributor as frequency inverter and motor starter

Intralogistics and conveyor technology require drive solutions which can be simply installed and which are easily accessible during operation and if maintenance is required. The NORDAC LINK field distributor complements and expands our product range and provides customers with a drive control which can be flexibly installed close to the motor.

  • Flexible equipment and function – freely configurable according to requirements and application
  • Available as frequency inverters (up to 7.5 kW) and motor starters (up to 3 kW)
  • Fast commissioning through simple controls
  • Safe and simple plug-in capability
  • Simplified maintenance through integrated maintenance switch and local manual control option
  • Can be integrated into all common bus systems

Condition monitoring as the basis for predictive maintenance

An intelligent, digitally networked design for Industry 4.0 enables continuous condition monitoring and predictive maintenance.

Your added value:
  • Increased system availability
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Better planning of servicing
At the EXHIBITION, NORD provides an outlook for solutions for status monitoring and predictive maintenance. With networked NORD drive systems, the condition data for the drive can be accessed at any time. The data can be processed directly by the integrated PLC of the NORD frequency inverter.


ProfiSafe module for increased safety


Our optional SK TU4-PNS module offers extra safety. Safe inputs and outputs can be connected to the application with plug connectors. In addition, an encoder can be connected to monitor the safe drive solution. In combination with a safety PLC, the drive electronics provide reliable communication using PROFIsafe via PROFINET.

Functions such as Safely Limited Speed (SLS), Safe Direction (SDI) or Safe Operation Stop (SOS) can be easily integrated to achieve SIL 3 (Safety Integrity Level 3) or PLe (Performance Level 3) Category 4.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

An elemental part of the „Total Cost of Ownership“(TCO) are, next to the investment cost, the costs for operation. These costs mainly consist of energy costs, costs for administration as well as costs for logistics and stocks. The enhancement of the energy efficiency and the reduction of variants are key for optimizing the economics of the plant.

NORD’s permanent magnetic synchronous IE4 motors (PMSM) are highly energy efficient and can decrease the operational costs significantly. Even in operating points with partial load and speed, as they occur often in conveying applications, NORD’s PMSM motors waste only few energy.

By reducing variants, the operational costs can be reduced additionally by cutting expenditures for administration and spare part stocks.
Eventually, minimized operational costs lead to annual financial savings and thus enhance the economics of the plant
