ST. LOUIS– Feb. 12, 2019 – Nidec Motor Corporation (NMC) continues to expand its offerings with a full range of variable speed/high torque product and integrated motor drive systems to withstand severe duty production and processing applications. Among Nidec’s newer innovations for ventilation, grain handling, food processing machines, conveyors, and packaging applications are:
Variable Speed High Efficiency Direct Drive Fan Motors – Reducing maintenance costs and power consumption allow poultry house operators and other agricultural-related businesses to increase profits. Nidec utilizes brushless permanent magnet (BPM) technology to reach over 90% motor efficiency, while the direct drive reduces maintenance and noise by eliminating belts and pulleys. The integrated speed controller allows large diameter fans to operate between 50 to 750 RPM, optimizing building ventilation regardless of the season.
Commander ID300 system - The Commander ID300 is a new integrated motor drive system with an onboard programmable logic controllers (PLC) for real-time management, multiple motor and drive control and the capability for integrated pump management, including constant pressure regulation. With built-in and expandable input/output (I/O), the ID300 could be a motor, drive and controller for various applications. The Commander ID300 also has simplified setup, utilizing keypads or a PC based software suite for configuration or system diagnostics. The initial product offering is 1-10 horsepower, 460 volt & 1-5 horsepower 230 volt.
FORECYTE™ - Nidec’s new Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) asset condition monitoring solution enables remote monitoring, collecting, visualization and analysis of vibration, temperature, and data from other sensors to determine equipment health and performance. This allows managers and owners to transition from reactive/preventive maintenance over to predictive maintenance. Defining the ideal time and scope of such maintenance minimizes unexpected equipment failure, reduces operating costs, and extends service life.
