Tiny servo drive from MCP delivers 4000W output

A range of ultra-small servo drives with huge output powers is being introduced by Motion Control Products. The Gold Twitter drives from Elmo weigh as little as 18g, yet can deliver up to 4000W of qualitative power. The drives are rugged enough to be mounted directly on the motor or moving mechanical load, enabling high servo performance with substantial cost savings in hardware and cabling.

Small enough to be PCB mounted, they run optimally on all types of servo motors and can operate in current, velocity and advanced position control modes. They offer advanced servo capabilities and support for EtherCAT and CANopen fieldbus technologies. Motion Control Products' managing director Steve McKay says: "We believe this to be the most powerful servo drive of its size on the market."

Capable of ultra-high current output such as 50A at 100V, the Gold Twitter supports any type of feedback sensor in single, dual and gantry loop configurations. Among its expanded features are a powerful internal braking shunt resistor and a multi extended I/O interface.

Based on the premise that the best way to dissipate heat is not to generate it in the first place, the Gold Twitter incorporates Elmo's proprietary FASST (Fast and Soft Switching Technology), resulting in greater than 99 per cent efficiency and negligible EMI.

Easily set up and tuned using the Windows(R) based Elmo Application Studio II (EASII) software, the drive can operate as a single-axis control system or as part of a multi-axis control system in a distributed real-time network. The drives are compliant with international EMC and safety standards, including safe torque off (STO) certification.
