The new IE5+ permanent magnet synchronous motors are energy efficient and compact for demanding conveying applications, with smooth surfaces that also make them ideal for washdown and other harsh or highly-regulated environments.

The existing generation of NORD IE3 and IE4 motors already offer high efficiency, but the new IE5+ technology takes this one step further, delivering even more efficiency at low speeds and partial loads, resulting in additional operational cost reduction. IE5+ motors are versatile and can be used for a range of applications, including food and beverage.

NORD IE5+ motors deliver power ranging from 0.5-1.5 hp, torque ranges from 14.2-42.5 lb-in., and speeds from 0-2,100 rpm, all in a single motor frame. When these motors are combined with NORD gear units and variable frequency drives, they become part of a complete, single-source cabinet or decentralized drive solution that is engineered for high performance. This solution offers a significant size and weight decrease over the IE3 and IE4 motors.

The IE5+ series takes advantage of NORD´s modular concept to reduce variances within a system. This helps operators reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) due to reduced spare part inventory and minimize administrative expenses, as well as set up leaner manufacturing, logistics, storage, and service processes. Engineers work directly with customers to tailor each solution to their specific needs and they are frequently able to provide specialized, precise drive solutions entirely from the company’s standard product offering, eliminating the need for costly custom components.
