NORD DRIVESYSTEMS presents DuoDrive series, which integrates high-efficiency IE5+ motor in a single-stage helical gear unit. Thanks to its hygienic, corrosion-resistant and easy-to-clean design, this system is ideal for use in food and pharmaceutical applications as well as intralogistics.
In the new series DuoDrive, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has integrated a high-efficiency IE5+ motor in a single-stage helical gear unit and thus optimised system efficiency. Compact installation space, high power density and very low noise emissions are only some advantages for users in the intralogistics sector or in food and pharmaceutical industries. The new DuoDrive gear unit/motor combination features high system efficiency and a consistent version reduction paired with a smooth, unventilated and compact design. Elimination of various wearing parts results in lower maintenance. In combination with the simple commissioning of the complete solution via plug & play, this results in a significant decrease of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to existing drive systems. DuoDrive is suitable for use in food and pharmaceutical industries as well as in intralogistics.
Hygienic design and high energy efficiency
DuoDrive from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has a hygienic washdown design where the IE5+ synchronous motor and the single-stage helical gear unit are installed in one single housing. As a system, the very compact DuoDrive concept achieves a significantly higher energy efficiency than the already proven LogiDrive concept where the IE5+ synchronous motor is combined with the NORDBLOC.1 bevel gear unit.
With up to 92%, DuoDrive currently offers one of the highest efficiencies of a gear unit/motor combination in this power class, and achieves very high systems efficiency in the partial load range. It is thus future-proof and a real cost reducer. The first available DuoDrive size covers gear unit speed ratios of i = 3.24 to i = 16.2 and is designed for torque ranges of up to 80 Nm and speeds of up to 1,000 min-1.
Available with different options according to requirements
Like all products from the NORD portfolio, DuoDrive is compatible with the NORD drive electronics and can be equipped with all common hollow shaft dimensions (20 to 40 mm) and flange versions (B5 and B14), or a torque arm. Depending on the customer requirements, Harting HAN connectors, M12 round plug connectors or direct wiring are provided for the motor connection. Different options like encoder feedback or a holding brake are also possible with DuoDrive. As it is easy to clean, corrosion resistant and wash-down capable, DuoDrive is also ideal for use in hygiene-sensitive and harsh environments, and ensures higher system availability and lower cleaning costs through lower cleaning effort.
