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


Tecnica Molitoria_duodrive


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

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

  • SK CU5 extension modules

Basic features:

  • Voltage: 1~200 - 240V / 3~380 - 480V
  • Powers: 0.25 - 22 kW
  • 5-6 x DI / 2 x DO / 2 x MFR / 2 x AIN, 1 x AOUT + optional on SK CU5
  • Serial interfaces RS485, CAN / Canopen, USB (Typ C), microSD-card, Industrial Ethernet
  • In sizes 1 and 2, all terminals have a plug-in design, including the power and motor connections



Condition Monitoring for Predictive Maintenance

The new product “CONDITION MONITORING for PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE” is a NORD application solution that manages requests for condition monitoring and predictive maintenance as well as Industry 4.0 and IIoT. The NORD solution is available for decentralized and control cabinet solutions.


  • Virtual sensors – the internal PLC can calculate information such as the optimal oil change time
  • Interface for digital/analogue sensors

Data preprocessing:

  • Local pre-processing of data with the integrated PLC and in the IPC
  • Definition of threshold values

Communication interfaces

  • Threshold violations or general status information can be communicated externally (via normal Industrial Ethernet dialects) Visualisation
  • Using the IPC, proprietary NORD software also enables drive data to be passed on to a customer cloud


  • The drive information and states can be visualized via a local dashboard

Customer benefit

  • Status oriented maintenance replaces time-based maintenance
  • Detection and avoidance of impermissible operating states at an early stage
  • Avoidance of unplanned downtimes
  • Plannable and cost-optimised maintenance
  • Increase in system availability

PROFIsafe module for increased safety

Our optional SK TU4-PNS module offers extra safety. Safe inputs and outputs can be connected to the application with plug connectors. In addition, an encoder can be connected to monitor the safe drive solution. In combination with a safety PLC, the drive electronics provide reliable communication using PROFIsafe via PROFINET.

Functions such as Safely Limited Speed (SLS), Safe Direction (SDI) or Safe Operation Stop (SOS) can be easily integrated to achieve SIL 3 (Safety Integrity Level 3) or PLe (Performance Level 3) Category 4.
