Cut the cost of variable speed motor control

Cut the cost of variable speed motor control
A new family of compact frequency inverters from Nord Gear UK can be adapted easily to suit specific applications, from simple speed control of AC motors to complex movement automation. A novel 200 percent overload capability will in many cases allow a smaller inverter drive to be selected, cutting as much as 10 percent off typical equipment costs. Motor torques of 200 percent nominal level can even be delivered at zero speed. This level of performance and precision control can, in many instances, allow low-cost AC motor equipment to be used in place of much more expensive motion controller and servomotor based automation.

Called the Nordac SK500, the new inverter family spans power output ratings from 0.25 to 7.5kW, covering a large range of common industrial applications, and comes complete with integrated RFI filters. Units can be selected and configured to provide simple V/Hz control of motor speed, or more sophisticated sensorless current vector operation, with optional encoder feedback for full closed-loop control. Optional software allows units to be used to perform precision positioning tasks. Moreover, Nordac SK500 family inverters can store up to four complete programs, allowing systems to be reconfigured in seconds for different control functions or production routines.
