NORD DuoDrive now with powers of up to 3kW

The patented DuoDrive from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS is an integrated gear unit/motor concept in a hygienic wash-down design that covers power ranges of up to 3kW. 

The integration of the gear unit and motor into a drive system sets the standards in usability and efficiency.

The fewer interfaces, the higher the system capability: NORD DuoDrive integrates the IE5+ synchronous motor into a single-stage helical gear unit, and with a system efficiency of up to 92% achieves high performance in this power class. System efficiency is also achieved in the partial load range. It is thus future-proof and reduces cost. The constant motor torque over a wide speed range allows for consistent version reduction and reduction of operating costs. Together with the simple usability, this results in a significant reduction in the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) in comparison with existing drive systems. DuoDrive is suitable for use in food and pharmaceutical industries as well as in intralogistics.

Full compatibility with market standards

In addition to system efficiency, the smooth, unventilated and compact design, as well as the quiet running with minimum noise emissions, are further important features. Elimination of many wearing parts results in lower maintenance. The patented geared motor is now available for powers of up to 3kW with a continuous torque of up to 250Nm and speeds of up to 1,000min-1, and covers gear unit speed ratios of i=3 to i=18. Market-compatible connection dimensions facilitate the replacement and the integration into existing plant designs.

Like all products from the NORD portfolio, DuoDrive is compatible with NORD drive electronics and can be equipped with all common hollow shaft dimensions (20 to 40mm) and flange versions (B5 and B14), or a torque arm. Depending on the customer requirements, Harting HAN connectors, M12 round plug connectors or a terminal strip are provided for the motor connection. Different options like encoder feedback or a holding brake are also possible with DuoDrive. Thanks to its design and operation with the frequency inverter, the DuoDrive can be universally used with the same motor variant worldwide.

Innovative geared motor in a hygienic wash-down design

As it is easy to clean, corrosion-resistant and wash-down capable, DuoDrive can also be used in hygiene-sensitive and harsh environments and ensures higher system availability and low cleaning costs through lower cleaning effort. The especially robust nsd tupH surface treatment is optionally available.
