Northern Industrial becomes Control Techniques Official Repair Partner
21 August 2019
Blackburn-based industrial automation spare parts and repair supplier Northern Industrial has been appointed Official Repair Partner for Control Techniques.
Northern Industrial is the UK’s largest distributor of Control Techniques products, holding its full range including the new Commander C200 range and Mentor MP.
Part of the Nidec Corporation since 2017, Control Techniques is a leading manufacturer of AC and DC variable speed drives, servos and power conversion technologies for commercial and industrial applications.
Gareth Jones, Regional Director, UK and Ireland, Nidec ACIM and Control Techniques, said: “Building on a 15 year relationship with Northern Industrial, we are very pleased to extend or working partnership in this way, strengthening the service offering to Control Techniques customers.
“Northern Industrial is now a complete one shop for Control Techniques, with the largest stock of Control Techniques drives in the UK and comprehensive onsite support and repair services.”
Northern Industrial is a multi-award-winning provider of new, reconditioned and obsolete parts and repair services, exporting to 146 countries. Sourcing from over 1,350 manufacturers, the company covers over 200,000 part numbers and holds approximately £7m in stock.
Northern Industrial managing director David Lenehan said: “Control Techniques products are the benchmark for drives and control products. Established over forty years they are constantly improving their products to provide the very best performance.
“The new Commander C200 for instance is a simple, straightforward Variable Speed Drive for AC induction and PM motors, with built-in PLC functionality, free M Connect software for commissioning, which easily replaces Commander SK drives.
“The Mentor MP is Control Techniques 5th generation DC drive and integrates the control platform from the world’s leading intelligent AC drive, Unidrive SP. This makes Mentor MP the most advanced DC drive available, giving optimum performance and flexible system interfacing capability.
“There are large numbers of DC motors in service throughout the world in various applications, the majority of which are easily capable of providing continued service. Upgrading your drive allows you to maximise the motor performance, enhance system reliability and interface digitally with modern control equipment using Ethernet and Fieldbus networks. Downtime is minimised, as only the drive needs to be replaced.
“Our mission is to save the world from downtime one part at a time, so it’s important for us to always be able to offer the best solutions, whether that’s through our massive stock of obsolete equipment and spare parts, or with the very best new technology from Control Techniques.”
