Elmo’s new ultra-high current Eagle servo drives

Elmo Motion Control will launch its cutting-edge, ultra-high current Eagle servo drives at AUVSI 2013 in Washington DC.

With ratings of 150 A, 300 A and 600 A and operating voltages ranging from 16 to 96 VDC, the newest Gold Eagle family members are specifically designed to meet the unique requirements of unmanned applications such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) and other systems that require repeated power bursts for time periods longer than 3 seconds.

To enhance the compact Gold Eagle package with new ultra-high current specifications, Elmo combined its proprietary power conversion technology together with an advanced pulse-width modulation (PWM) “follower” algorithm. This is the first time such high current has been achieved in such a small military-grade package.

“By upgrading the Eagle power rates for longer times and keeping the package super-compact and easy to integrate inside any system, Elmo is offering an outstanding servo drive that is not available anywhere else.” John McLaughlin, Elmo’s US Manager said. “We think the AUVSI is a great place to launch this achievement.”

McLaughlin added, “The new servo drives were created to directly answer customer needs.”

At the AUVSI event (Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International), Elmo will also present complete motion solutions for a wide range of unmanned applications, bringing multiple benefits to systems like missile winglets and UAVs. Visitors will also be able to see the Company’s motion control solutions for applications with multiple integrated axes. Among Elmo’s products are military-grade multi-axis motion controllers that can control up to 100 servo axes in any motion scenario and are EtherCAT and CANopen compatible.

AUVSI 2013 will be held from August 13-15 in Washington DC. Elmo Motion Control is located at Booth #2701.
