Integrated drive units for price-sensitive applications

Supplier: NORD Drivesystems
11 September, 2009

Bargteheide – NORD extends the flexible NORDAC DA series of decentral drive components, adding the new type SK 2xxE frequency inverters which were first presented at this year's Hannover Messe trade show.

The inverters are mounted atop a motor's terminal box, thus creating combined, fully inte-grated drive units suitable for use in the field. The robust systems ensure relia-ble and price-efficient operation. Suitable for applications in wide-ranging plants, such as conveying systems, they have been optimized for price-sensitive market segments. SK 2xxE drives feature sensorless current vector control, an integrated brake chopper and a control module for an electromag-netic brake. Configuration and programming are especially user-friendly. De-spite their focus on cost-sensitive applications, the units are not limited to basic functions, but actually provide the same wide functional range as the proven enclosure-mounted SK 5xxE inverters. Even faced with higher requirements, users can therefore install SK 2xxE units throughout a plant, benefiting from unified operation.
