NORD Announces Complete Drive Solution

Solution focuses on energy efficiency, variant reduction, and lowering TCO.

LogiDrive® complete drive solutions from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS reduce planning and commissioning efforts through cost-effective, standardized designs engineered to industry standards and application requirements. These solutions are especially well suited for Post & Parcel, Airport, and warehouse logistics as they are specifically aligned with the intralogistics and material handling requirements of these industries.

For each intralogistics area, there are advanced versions utilizing IE5+ synchronous motor technology and basic versions with IE3 asynchronous motors. While LogiDrive advanced drive systems address issues such as energy efficiency, variant reduction, and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), the basic versions primarily focus on cost efficiency.

Both advanced and basic LogiDrive systems feature a compact, modular design with Plug & Play capabilities for simple installation, commissioning, and maintenance. In combination with IE5+ motors, advanced versions for the Post & Parcel and Airport industries also include a NORDAC LINK variable frequency drive and either a NORDBLOC.1® helical bevel gear unit or a DuoDrive integrated gear unit. NORDAC LINK decentralized variable frequency drives are wall mounted and feature an Ethernet interface, PROFIsafe options for functional safety, and PLC functionality for drive-related functions.

Basic LogiDrive versions offer a flexible gear unit selection with an IE3 asynchronous motor and motor-mounted NORDAC FLEX variable frequency drive. The NORDAC FLEX is NORD’s most versatile VFD with fully scalable functions configurable to specific requirements, an optional Ethernet interface extendable for each option module, and various functional safety options. These VFDs also deliver high precision regulation with POSICON integrated positioning mode to ensure accurate movement in intralogistics systems.

NORDAC ON/ON+ variable frequency drives were designed by NORD for the special requirements of horizontal conveyor technology and feature a version for IE3 motors (ON) as well as a version optimized for use with IE5+ synchronous motors (ON+). The series is characterized by an integrated multi-protocol Ethernet interface for easy integration into automation systems with required protocols easily set via drive parameters. They also offer Plug & Play capability for quick installation and maintenance, integrated functions to improve conveyor efficiency, and full PLC functionality for drive-related functions.

Basic LogiDrive versions for warehousing also utilize NORDAC ON variable frequency drives for their scalable functionality and dynamic control. In addition to the VFD, the solution includes a UNIVERSAL SI worm gear unit and an IE3 asynchronous motor. UNIVERSAL SI worm gear units provide considerable installation space advantages due to their compact design, flexible input and output options, and universal mounting capabilities. Together, these products deliver a cost-optimized, standardized solution capable of reducing system variants.
