Drives for pal­let con­veyor tech­nol­ogy

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MOTORS & DRIVES -

Nord Drivesys­tems says it has once again pushed the bound­aries to de­liver op­ti­mally matched, in­di­vid­u­ally con­fig­urable and flex­i­ble drive tech­nol­ogy. The in­tro­duc­tion of this par­tic­u­lar drive helps to re­duce the num­ber of ver­sions and min­imises costs for trans­port­ing pal­lets and cage pal­lets with roller or chain con­vey­ors.

For sim­ple pal­let con­veyor tech­nol­ogy ap­pli­ca­tions, Nord has de­vel­oped an ef­fi­cient drive com­bi­na­tion con­sist­ing of an asyn­chro­nous mo­tor and a Nor­dac Base fre­quency in­verter. Manag­ing Di­rec­tor for Nord Drivesys­tems in Aus­tralia, Martin Broglia, says this drive so­lu­tion is tai­lored to the re­quire­ments of pal­let con­veyor tech­nol­ogy and boasts a ro­bust de­sign for dura­bil­ity. “This par­tic­u­lar so­lu­tion can be com­bined with all Nord geared mo­tors and can be ex­tended ac­cord­ing to cus­tomer spec­i­fi­ca­tions,” he said. “By stan­dar­d­is­ing this so­lu­tion, we have re­duced the num­ber of ver­sions to con­sid­er­ably re­duce stock of spare parts. This has also helped to op­ti­mise main­te­nance and re­duce costs.”

Nord Drivesys­tems fea­tures

The three-phase asyn­chro­nous mo­tor pow­ers up to 1.5 kW and fea­tures high over­load ca­pac­ity, solid work­man­ship and a long ser­vice life. The fre­quency in­vert­ers are in­stalled close to the mo­tor and are equipped with an in­te­grated PLC. The freely pro­gram­mable PLC pro­cesses the data from sen­sors and ac­tu­a­tors, pro­vides di­ag­nos­tic op­tions and com­mu­ni­cates with the higher-level con­troller. A pre-in­stalled soft­ware for con­trol, pa­ram­e­ter­i­sa­tion and di­ag­no­sis is con­fig­ured for spe­cial drive re­quire­ments of pal­let con­veyor tech­nol­ogy.

The drive units can be in­te­grated into all com­mon bus sys­tems. The AS in­ter­face or I/O in­ter­face are es­pe­cially suit­able as a sim­ple and cost ori­ented so­lu­tion for com­mu­ni­ca­tion in pal­let con­veyor tech­nol­ogy. A dif­fer­ent bus sys­tem can be used with­out any prob­lems if there are more so­phis­ti­cated re­quire­ments.
