Tiny EtherCAT servo drive weighs in at 18g

Elmo Motion Control : 16 June, 2014  (New Product)
Elmo Motion Control has announced the release of its flagship Gold Twitter product, claimed to be the smallest, high-power servo drive available.
Tiny EtherCAT servo drive weighs in at 18g
At just 18g in weight, and less than 13 cm<3>, the Gold Twitter delivers up to 4000W of qualitative power, ultra high current such as 50A/100V 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 excellent 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 moving mechanical load, thus ensuring the high servo performance and saving huge costs in hardware and cabling.
"We´re not aware of anything in the industry that approaches this power and size density," says Haim Monhait, Elmo CEO. "At a record-setting power density while delivering ultra high power of 4000W, we improved the efficiency by 200%, reduced the volume by 75% and increased the power density by more than 400%."
The Gold Twitter runs optimally on any servo motor and operates in current, velocity, and advanced position modes. It supports any feedback sensor in single, dual and gantry loop configurations.
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 >99% efficiency with negligible EMI.
Easily set up and tuned using Windows-based Elmo Application Studio II (EASII) software, the 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.  Among its expanded features, the Gold Twitter incorporates a powerful internal breaking shunt resistor and multi extended I/O interface.
