Elmo Motion Control will display the Gold Duet, its new generation of compact, integrated servo drives and motors, at SLAS 2014 San Diego (Jan 18-22, Stand 941).
Elmo, a provider of comprehensive motion control solutions, will also show its versatile Gold Line series of servo drives for optimal control of mechanics, as well as the latest version of its advanced Gold Maestro motion controller.
With continuous rapid advances in Laboratory Automation, the need for innovative motion control with high precision, reliability, safety and ease of use is paramount. Elmo’s highly advanced, compact products offer excellent cost-cutting advantages for laboratory screening systems and robots, portable scanning and diagnostics systems, microscopy automation and other applications.
The new Gold Duet is a drive-motor system that integrates a high performance servo motor with an intelligent Gold servo drive, making it ideal for use in compact lab machines and medical devices. This EtherCAT-based system saves machine space, minimizes wiring, cuts EMI and reduces installation and maintenance costs. The Gold Duet is available in a full range of flange sizes (40, 60, 80, and 130) and power ranges (30 W – 5 kW).
Returning to SLAS 2014 is Elmo’s Gold Line series of servo drives for any motor. The Gold Line offers outstanding performance with a rich selection of features: intelligent motion functions (OC, Master-Slave Follower, Modulo, Dynamic Braking, ECAM,PIP Cascaded Vector Control, I2t Protection); DS-402 profile modes; the ability to handle any feedback; certified STO safety compliance; up to 65 kW of power; and UL and IEC 61800 certification to 800 VDC and 530 VAC. The Gold Line is fully compliant with both EtherCAT and CANopen protocols.
All of Elmo’s Gold Line products are easily and precisely controlled and synchronized using Elmo’s Gold Maestro motion controller, which brings single and multi-axis equipment to the highest level of performance possible. The Gold Maestro offers advanced features like Elmo’s Flying Vision™ which enables ‘on-the-fly’ updates of target positions using motion blending and transitions, superimposed motion and other capabilities. It also supports Delta robots and kinematics, and 1D, 2D and 3D error correction. Adhering to EtherCAT and CANopen networking standards, the Gold Maestro brings cost-effective integration, enabling fast implementation using standard programming environments.
At SLAS 2014, Elmo will show EASII, the exciting new generation Elmo Application Studio that “walks you through” drive and motion configuration and places the full power of Elmo’s knowledge at your fingertips. The Windows®-based EASII provides a complete set of Quick EtherCAT configuration, and Tuning wizards to get machines moving in minutes, as well as a comprehensive motion control design and debugging environment that speeds drive and motion sequence optimization, and shortens development time.
