The new IE5+ motor generation from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers constantly high efficiency over the entire adjustment range in a hygienic design that raises the LogiDrive concept for intralogistics to a new level with regard to energy efficiency and reduction of variants. The total cost of ownership (TCO) can be considerably reduced.
The energy-efficient latest generation permanent magnet synchronous motor has considerably lower losses than the current IE4 series. The unventilated smooth motor achieves its high efficiency that, at times, is significantly above efficiency class IE5 via a wide torque range – and is optimally suitable for the operation in the partial load range. The compact IE5+ motor offers a high power density with less installation space and will be initially launched in a size for power ranges from 0.35 to 1.1 kW with a continuous torque from 1.6 to 4.8 Nm and speeds from 0 to 2,100 min-1. Direct motor attachment, as well as NEMA and IEC motor attachments, are available.
The motor concept will be gradually extended, with more sizes and powers. It is ideal for use in hygiene-sensitive and harsh environments, as it is easy to clean corrosion-resistant and wash-down capable. nsd tupH surface treatment and IP69K protection class are optionally available, as well as an integrated mechanical brake. An integrated encoder is part of the standard equipment. With the new generation of IE5+ motors, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS takes the first step towards a new product system landscape with a focus on ultimate energy efficiency paired with a compact design.
The new IE5+ synchronous motor can be combined with all NORD gear units and drive electronics as a modular system and supplements the successful LogiDrive concept. The standardised geared motor variants – consisting of an energy-saving synchronous motor, a 2-stage helical bevel gear unit and a NORDAC LINK frequency inverter has been specially developed, for use in intralogistics, parcel logistics and airport technology.
