Meeting Demands for Big Performance and Small Form Factor
Elmo Motion Control launched the world’s smallest, highest power servo for operating in extreme conditions – the DOUBLE GOLD BEE – at the AUSA meeting in Washington earlier this week.
Suitable for a wide range of air and land applications and platforms, and offering developers high performance in minimal volume, the servo is especially suitable for demanding applications such as UAVs, UGVs, radars and antennas, camera and laser pods and azimuth/elevation systems, meeting the emerging requirements of Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing.
DOUBLE GOLD BEE delivers 10,000W of qualitative power and continuous currents up to 160A (80V) and 140A (100V), with an overall weight of only 1.2 ounces. The drive can therefore be positioned within a motor or on a moving load – saving space, improving machine performance, reducing cable connections and eliminating electrical cabinets – while delivering exceptional levels of power to the motor.
“We are proud to be a leader in an age where advanced motion technology is driving some of the world’s most critical missions. Whether it’s for a missile winglet control, a ground turret control or for an underwater thruster, our servo performance and minimal form factor play a crucial role. The DOUBLE GOLD BEE precisely meets these needs – being both small and lightweight on the one hand, while on the other, delivering high power – which improves the efficiency and accuracy of the application,” commented CEO Haim Monhait.
