Cost reduction through efficient energy-saving motors



  • Performance: 0,35 kW - 4,0 kW
  • Efficiency class: IE5+
  • Certified for global use


The new generation of NORD IE5+ synchronous motors is manufactured in-house for use in intralogistics as well as in the food and beverage industry. Our motors feature a compact and hygienic design in a very small space and thus ensure high corrosion resistance and easy cleaning.


  • Optionally available with nsd tupH and IP69K
  • Certified for global use
  • Flexible motor mounting: direct mounting, NEMA, IEC
  • Constant high efficiency over the entire adjustment range

MAXXDRIVE® Industrial Gear Units

NORD MAXXDRIVE® Industrial Gear Units provide high output torques from 15,000 Nm to 282,000 Nm and are perfect for use in heavy duty applications such as agitators, conveyor belt drives, mixers, mills, drums or crushers.

Industrial gear units are available as helical gear units or bevel gear units. They are constructed with the UNICASE housing which was developed by us and can accommodate large roller bearings, which guarantee a long service life. By the way: NORD is the industrial gear unit manufacturer with the world's largest industrial gear units in a UNICASE housing.

  • Powerful: NORD industrial gear units offer very high output torques up to 282,000 Nm.
  • Long service life: Optimised geometries ensure excellent load capacity, long life and low noise.
  • Robust: Our industrial gear units are equipped with high quality, low friction bearings and an especially torsionally rigid one-piece UNICASE housing.
  • Flexible: The gear units can be combined with all of our electric motors.

Ex-protected motors from NORD:
A safe bet

NORD DRIVESYSTEMS supplies customised motors and geared motors with explosion protection. Systems based on high-quality components are designed to suit the application in accordance with specific customer requirements.


  • Robustness
    Our electric motors with explosion protection can be used in dust atmospheres of categories 2D or 3D (zones 21 and 22) and in gas atmospheres of categories 2G or 3G (zones 1 and 2)
  • Quality
    NORD DRIVESYSTEMS works very closely with the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) and DEKRA EXAM GmbH in order to keep the quality of production, control and products at the highest level. All motors of category 2 have a type examination certificate.
  • Know-how
    NORD DRIVESYSTEMS has many years of experience with gas and dust explosion protection and has been manufacturing explosion protection motors which meet the highest demands for over a decade.

nsd tupH surface treatment

nsd tupH from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS is the perfect solution for high performance applications and extreme condition.

  • Food and beverage industry, especially dairies, meat, poultry and seafood processing businesses, bakery industry
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Water and waste water plants
  • Car wash equipment
  • Offshore and coastal areas

nsd tupH from NORD DRIVESYSTEMS is an alternative to multiple coats of paint and stainless steel in highly corrosive environments.

  • Complies with FDA Title 21 CFR 175.300
  • Easy to clean surfaces
  • Resistant to acids and alkalis (wide pH range)
  • No spreading of corrosion, even after damage
  • No flaking
  • Corrosion-resistant – prevents contact corrosion
  • Free from chromates


Mobile commissioning and service solution for all NORD drives

  • Dashboard-based visualisation for drive monitoring and fault diagnosis
  • Parameterisation with help function and rapid access to parameters
  • Individually configurable oscilloscope function for drive analysis
  • Backup and recovery function for simple handling of drive parameters



NORDAC ON/ON+ VFDs 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-&-Play capabilities, and a very compact design. NORDAC ON/ON+ variable frequency drives are a reliable, economic solution for IIoT environments.


  • Plug-&-Play solution for fast commissioning
  • Operation of asynchronous and synchronous motors
  • PLC functionality for drive-related functions (PLC onboard)
  • Compact, space-saving design due to integration of Ethernet communication

DuoDrive Integrated Gear Unit

DuoDrive is a revolutionary integrated gear unit/motor concept with hygienic washdown design. It 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 very low noise emissions, it is extremely well-suited for airport baggage handling systems. Together with its simple Plug-&-Play commissioning, the complete DuoDrive solution results in a significant reduction in Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) compared to other drive systems.


  • Latest generation permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) integrated in a single-stage helical gear unit housing
  • Reduced Total Cost of Ownership and fast Return on Investment
  • Compact, smooth body design for durability and space savings
  • Available with IP69K surface treatment and nsd tupHTM sealed surface conversion
