SimplIQ continues to be innovated and updated with its line of compact, high power-density digital servo drives. One of the important new features Trombone brings to the SimplIQ line of servo drives for industrial applications is the ability to operate from a high voltage power source without a transformer, using a “direct to mains” connection to a 400 Vdc or 750 Vdc power source.
The Trombone’s dimensions are 110 x 75 x 30 mm (4.3″ x 2.95″ x 1.2″). With its small footprint, the pin-based Trombone can be PCB-mounted or integrated within the motor.
Haim Monhait, CEO of Elmo Motion Control, says “The SimplIQ Trombone is for integration into any motion system, either single- or multi-axis, and results in a high performance motion control unit.”
There are two dc bus options: 80 – 400 Vdc and 200 – 750 Vdc, with a built-in smart supply for controlling the back-up capabilities. The Trombone can also operate with a 24 Vdc auxiliary power supply for the back-up features.
The Trombone operates with sinusoidal, trapezoidal and dc motors. When using a number of SimplIQ Trombones in a multi-axis application, Elmo’s multi-axis controller, the Gold Maestro, can be used to control the network of servo drives.
