The new Nord Drivesystems’ 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-and-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.

Next level integration

DuoDrive is a integrated gear unit/motor concept in hygienic wash-down 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 the highest efficiency of a gear unit/motor combination in this power class on the market, 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.

Full compatibility with market standards

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.
