NORD will be exhibiting at the 93rd Annual AAAE Conference and Exposition in Las Vegas, Nevada from July 11th – 13th. Located at Booth 813, they will be highlighting their airport technology solutions including drive systems for check-in, sorting, high-speed transport, baggage handling, and more.

NORD will exhibit new, innovative airport drive solutions at the 93rd Annual American Association of Airport Executives Conference and Exposition. With airports constantly reinventing and updating to meet the needs of today, NORD is ready support them with reliable, flexible, and highly customizable solutions that focus on energy efficiency, reduction of variants, and reducing Total Cost of Ownership. At AAAE, registered attendees can see what NORD has to offer firsthand and speak directly with NORD experts to find the drives and controls that best meet their needs.

IE5+ Synchronous Motors – The newest generation of NORD motor technology offers the highest operational efficiency available on the market today. IE5+ motors are focused on maximizing efficiency, with a compact footprint that can be installed quicky and easily, even in small spaces. With these motors in place, operators can experience energy savings, reduce system variants, and minimize operating costs for their applications, especially for applications where operation at partial loads and low speeds is required.

When IE5+ synchronous motors are utilized as a part of the LogiDrive complete drive system solution they create an energy efficient, maintenance-friendly solution consisting of an efficient gearbox, permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM), and a decentralized variable frequency drive. Plug-and-play decentralized technology makes installation and maintenance extremely easy and the LogiDrive system also maintains operational efficiency at partial load and low speeds, making it the ideal solution for high-volume baggage systems and other conveyor systems.

NORD’s new DuoDrive is a revolutionary integrated gear unit/motor concept that combines a high-efficiency IE5+ motor with a single-stage helical gear unit in one housing. Due to its optimized system efficiency, high power density, and quiet operation, it is extremely well-suited for airport baggage handling systems. Together with its simple Plug-and-Play commissioning, DuoDrive solution can provide a significant reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to other drive systems.

The new NORDAC ON/ON+ variable frequency drives were developed to meet the special requirements of horizontal conveyor technology and for use with the new IE5+ synchronous motor (NORDAC ON+). They are characterized by an integrated Ethernet interface, full Plug-and-Play capabilities, and a compact, space-saving design. NORDAC ON/ON+ variable frequency drives are a reliable, economic solution for IIoT environments.

NORD’s new Condition Monitoring solution helps maintain machines and plants proactively to reduce downtimes and increase overall efficiency. It provides real- or near-real-time drive and status data which is recorded and analyzed periodically or continuously to optimize operational performance and safety. This drive status data is stored on a local industrial PC which can then be transferred and summarized on a remote dashboard.
