SK 540E: Managing Drive-Related Tasks Without External Controller
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 540E´s 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.
