article image Highly intelligent family: NORD frequency inverters integrate PLC functions

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.
