New decentralised drives option

New decentralised drives option
Nord Gear's new SK 200E frequency inverter range combines a sensorless current vector drive with compre-hensive control and communications features in a compact IP55 or IP66 rated enclosure. Covering the 0.25 to 7.5kW power range with single phase 110V and 230V and three-phase 400V AC supply, the compact and rugged unit may be directly mounted to a wide choice of Nord high-efficiency motors and gear motors for maximum decentralised potential, or supplied as a near-motor mounted alternative.

Although aimed at price-sensitive applications in conveying and factory automation, the new SK 200E includes a wealth of sophisticated standard features, modules and options allowing the user to select only those necessary for the application, keeping costs to a minimum yet preserving the possibility to upgrade performance and scaling by adding additional modules as needed.

Standard features include high quality current vector control, Class A line filtering, plug-in EEPROM parameter storage, motor brake management, internal and external braking resistors, integrated diagnostics, energy saving functions, incremental encoder evaluation and positioning control capability.

Furthermore, version options are available for EN 954-1 (EN 13849-1) compliant safety with Nord's 'Safe-Stop' feature providing category 4, with stop category 0 and 1. For large-scale factory automation applications, an integrated AS-Interface protocol version is also available which may be supplied separately or combined with the Safe-Stop feature for maximum levels of safety.

The SK 200E's modular design covers true simple-to-complex application capability. At entry level, the unit is able to provide simple speed control from parameters set via easily accessed dip-switches with four control inputs and two externally adjustable setpoint potentiometers for machine control interfacing. The built-in status and diagnostics cockpit provides LEDs for I/O signal state with an RS232/RS485 diagnostics interface available to ensure optimal set-up. For increased functionality, the SK 200E can be directly programmed with Nord's NORDCON PC-based software or with externally mounted 'Control Box' options.
