New Platinum Line servo drives from Heason Technology

New single- and multi-axis servo capability for qualitative power levels up to 5.5 kW

Recently announced by Elmo Motion Control and now available with full support from UK distribution partner Heason Technology, the new Platinum Line range of advanced servo drives are stated by Heason to “Combine ultra-fast EtherCAT™ networking, exceptional functional safety and an advanced servo control capability that will enable unprecedented levels of machine performance for OEMs”. As a choice for machine automation applications Elmo´s new Platinum Line covers four drive designs with various single- and multi-axis servo capability for qualitative power levels up to 5.5 kW.

Described by Elmo Motion Control as “Safer, smarter, smaller and simpler intelligent drives”, they are claimed to offer industry leading servo cycling times with negligible jitter and latency, and together with wide bandwidth control they are well suited to precise motion positioning and event synchronisation tasks. This processing capability is channelled through EtherCAT with cycling down to 100 microseconds for demanding applications including industrial and medical laser processing, scanning systems, materials handling, and high-speed pick and place equipment.

Equipped with IEC 61800-5-2 SIL-3, Cat4 PL-e, the Platinum Line also includes the highest-level of functional safety over EtherCAT (FSoE) certifications in addition to smart functional safety features such as over-the-network safety and optional safety IOs supported by Elmo´s advanced safety software. Further, the new range includes advanced features such as multiple servo feedback with two absolute encoders or up to three encoders simultaneously working together.

Elmo Motion Control´s new EASII 2.7 application studio software takes care of EtherCAT configuration, motion configuration, drive tuning, parameter recording, monitoring, and much more. Heason Technology has worked closely on numerous projects with Elmo Motion Control over several years as part of the West Sussex based system integrator´s in house design and build competency where the new drives can be specified as an integral part of high precision motion systems that typically comprise custom designed or standard positioning mechanics and motion controls for a wide range of applications across industry, research and defence.
