March 12, 2012 - For functionally complex and dynamic drive applications, SK 540E intelligent control cabinet inverter supports programming of drive-related functions according to IEC 61131. It supports range of drives, can control synchronous motors, and integrates universal encoder interface for energy recovery. Able to perform even sophisticated tasks without external PLC, inverter allows for upgrades to pump drive control with monitoring functions and characteristic curve functions.

Press release date: March 9, 2012

For functionally complex and dynamic drive applications, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS announces a new model from its SK 500E line of control cabinet inverters. The new intelligent SK 540E inverter supports the convenient and free programming of drive-related functions according to IEC 61131. It has all the established features of the series but supports a wider range of drives than any of its sister models.

One major addition in control capability is the SK 540Es ability to control synchronous motors. It also integrates a new universal encoder interface for energy recovery. SK 540E performs even sophisticated tasks without an external PLC, thus saving considerable costs.

A great example of the functionality and versatility of the SK 540E is its use as a pump drive. The control of the pump drive can be upgraded with monitoring functions and characteristic curve functions, enabling them to directly react to fluctuating flow rates. Thanks to its high-performance microprocessor, the new inverter model is also suitable for high-speed cutting processes in turning and milling. Just as the established models from the series, SK 540E provides the safety function Safe Torque Off as well as sensorless current vector control and an integrated brake chopper for regenerative operation. The SK 540E also has the ability to identify the parameters of the motor it is connected to automatically.

Company background NORD was founded in 1965 to develop, produce, and market drive technology. As an industry leader ranking # 2 in the US & Canada and # 2 as the Global Leader, NORD reaches nearly all markets. With 2800 employees and 35 assembly factories worldwide, sales and support is available in 60+ countries. This ensures short delivery times and services close to you. NORD supplies application-specific concepts and solutions which include but are not limited to energy-saving drives. NORD provides a wide range of products to meet your needs with gearboxes ranging in torque ratings from 8.5 lb-in to 1, 770, 000 lb-in and electric motors rating in power from 1/6 HP to 250 HP. In addition, the product line consists of high performance AC Vector Drives and AC Drives for panel mount or distributed motor mount.
