NORD SK 500E POWERLINK Frequency Converters

The SK 500E range of frequency converters by NORD DRIVESYSTEMS now speaks POWERLINK as well.
(PresseBox) ( Berlin, )
With a new interface, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS made their SK 500E range of frequency converters fit for POWERLINK. The advantages of that Industrial Ethernet standard are self-evident: Performance and allowable line length are virtually unlimited and open up a multitude of different possible uses; prices of the required network components are continuing to fall.

The POWERLINK-Interface can be mounted with ease directly on the SK 500E converter. NORD offers the modular SK 500E frequency converters for in-cabinet use in dimensions 1 to 9 with power ranging from 0,25 to 90 kW. With different housing configurations, a continuous performance ramp and numerous upgrading options, they can be adapted for use in various application areas.

The foundation of all models within the SK 500E range is a generously equipped basic device that can be functionally extended and optimized for the individual application using plug-in modules. Basic equipment includes sensor-less current vector regulation, automatic parameter identification for attached motors, an integrated braking chopper for generator operation as well as PID controllers for process control and four parameter sets for online selection.

In order to ensure aptness for all communication and application requirements of the SK 500E range of frequency converters, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS contin-ually broadens the available range of compatible field bus and Ethernet inter-faces.

About EPSG

The Ethernet POWERLINK Standardization Group (EPSG) is an independent organization founded in 2003 by leading companies from the fields of motion control and automation technology. Its aims are the standardization and further development of the POWERLINK protocol first introduced by B&R in 2001. This high-performance real-time communication system is an advanced protocol based on the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standard designed to ensure real-time data transfer in the microsecond range. The EPSG cooperates with leading standardization organizations such as CAN in Automation (CiA) and the IEC. Anton Meindl, business manager of Controls at B&R, is the organization's CEO.
