NORD and HUMMEL: Cooperation against corrosion

Corrosion resistance down to the last detail for drive solutions in harsh environments

With its nsd tupH geared motors, NORD DRIVESYSTEMS offers optimally protected and corrosion-resistant drives for the food industry and other demanding sectors. An innovative surface refinement process makes the aluminum housings of NORD drives as resistant as stainless steel, but offers additional advantages. NORD relies on the M23 INOX circular connectors from HUMMEL AG for the necessary supply of the connecting cables.

In the beverage and food industry, the pharmaceutical industry, water treatment and waste water plants as well as applications in offshore and coastal areas, it is essential to efficiently protect machines and plants as well as the drive technology used against dirt, moisture, splash water and aggressive media.

A sensitive point of the smooth motors, which even comply with IP protection class 69K, is, as with any electrical machine, the passage of the cables for the power supply and signal transmission. Here NORD DRIVESYSTEMS relies on the experience of HUMMEL AG in Denzlingen, which offers a huge selection of electrotechnical components from its own development and production and is one of the leading suppliers of circular connectors.

HUMMEL offers connector solutions for signal, power and Industrial Ethernet. For signal transmission alone, a total of 26 housing types are available. These, in turn, can be equipped with ten different contact inserts. Male and female inserts are also interchangeable. The result: customers have almost countless possible combinations.

The modularity of the HUMMEL connectors has further advantages that immediately convinced NORD: storage is minimised, scheduling is simplified and assembly follows a uniform principle. This saves time, money and trouble.
