With ratings of 150 A, 300 A and 600 A and operating voltages ranging from 16 to 96 VDC, the newest Gold Eagle family members are specifically designed to meet the unique requirements of unmanned applications such as unmanned vehicles, turrets and other systems that require repeated power bursts for relatively long time periods.
To enhance the compact Gold Eagle package with new ultra-high current specifications, Elmo combined its proprietary power conversion technology together with an advanced pulse-width modulation (PWM) “follower” algorithm. This is the first time such high current has been achieved in such a small military-grade package.
John McLaughlin, Elmo’s US General Manager, said that by significantly increasing the Gold Eagle power and current rates for longer times while keeping the package super-compact and easy to integrate inside any system, Elmo is offering an outstanding servo drive that is not available anywhere else. We thought the AUVSI was a great place to launch this achievement.
McLaughlin added that the new servo drives were created to directly answer customer needs.
At the AUVSI event, Elmo also presented complete motion solutions for a wide range of unmanned applications, bringing multiple benefits to systems like missile winglets and UAVs. Visitors were able to see the Company’s motion control solutions for applications with multiple integrated axes. Among Elmo’s products are military-grade multi-axis motion controllers that can control up to 100 servo axes in any motion scenario and are EtherCAT and CANopen compatible.
