In the airport industry, drive solutions are in constant demand to ensure air traffic runs smoothly. Some examples where drives are used is in luggage conveyor systems, passenger bridges, lifts, and walkways.
New security measures, increasing passenger numbers and current budget limitations have forced many airports to change the framework of their business. When new investments are made, airports have been critically addressing the short term, long term costs and benefits of the new systems. As a long-term partner, NORD provides more that just the delivery of components. Drive solutions are created with close cooperation with the customer, therefore unnecessary options and special features are eliminated. NORD drive solutions also contribute to an overall cost reduction by energy efficient operation, wear resistance and long service life.
Here a 2-stage bevel gearbox regulated by a TRIO SK 300E provides smooth frictionless luggage transport.
TRIO SK 300E is a particularly efficient and economical solution in the airline baggage handling industry. It combines a frequency inverter, motor and gearbox into one unit. The frequency inverter unit is mounted directly on the motor terminal box. This integrated design eliminates the need to shield motor cables and thereby guarantees the drive meets EMC guidelines. The frequency inverter has IP 66 enclosure protection and has an integrated heat sink, which handles an ambient temperature range of 10°F to 120°F. It is extremely robust and resilient and can handle a 200 percent overload capacity for 3 seconds and provides start-up torque up to 400 percent. The frequency inverter is further protected thermally, has an integrated electromagnetic brake chopper that makes it suitable for even the most sensitive lifting functions. The SK 300E resists voltage spikes and is over 97 percent efficient.
