Conveyor technology company Nord Drivesystems has introduced a drive that minimises costs for transporting pallets and cage pallets with roller or chain conveyors.

The drive combination has an asynchronous motor and a Nordac Base frequency inverter.

The solution is tailored to the requirements of pallet conveyor technology and has a durable, robust design, according to the company.

The solution can be combined with all Nord geared motors and can be extended according to customer specifications.

By standardising this solution, Nord has reduced the number of versions to reduce stock of spare parts, which has also helped to optimise maintenance and reduce costs.

The three-phase asynchronous motor powers up to 1.5 kW and features high overload capacity, solid workmanship, and a long service life.

The frequency inverters are installed close to the motor and are equipped with an integrated PLC.

The freely programmable PLC processes the data from sensors and actuators, provides diagnostic options and communicates with the higher-level controller.

A pre-installed software for control, parameterisation and diagnosis is configured for special drive requirements of pallet conveyor technology.
