Elmo announces tiny Gold Twitter servo drive

May 23, 2014 - Elmo Motion Controls announced Gold Twitter servo drive. At just 18 grams (less than 1 ounce) in weight, and less than 13 cm3, the Gold Twitter delivers up to 4000 W of qualitative power, ultra high current such as 50 A / 100 V with advanced servo capabilities, and support for EtherCAT and CANopen field-bus communication standards for deployment in a variety of application configurations, compliant with international safety, EMC standards and STO certification.

The GOLD Twitter is suitable for applications that require very high servo performance but are very limited with space. In addition, the Gold Twitter is rugged to meet the growing needs to mount the drives “on the motor,” “next to the motor,” or “on the moving mechanical load,” thus ensuring the high servo performance and saving huge costs in hardware and cabling.

The Gold Twitter runs optimally on any servo motor and operates in current, velocity, and advanced position modes.

The Gold Twitter supports any feedback sensor in single, dual and gantry loop configurations.

Gold Twitter incorporates Elmo’s FASST (Fast and Soft Switching Technology) resulting in >99% efficiency with negligible EMI.

Easily set up and tuned using the Windows based Elmo Application Studio II (EASII) software, Gold Twitter servo drive can operate as a single-axis control solution or as part of a multi-axis control system in a distributed configuration real-time network. Gold Twitter incorporates an internal breaking shunt resistor and multi extended I/O interface.
