Courtesy: Elmo Motion ControlElmo Motion Control, a leading provider of advanced and cost-effective motion control solutions, introduces the Gold Twitter product, the smallest, high-power servo drive available on the market today.

At just 18 g and less than 13 cm3, the Gold Twitter delivers up to 4000 W of qualitative power, ultra-high current such as 50 A/100 V with the most advanced servo capabilities and support for EtherCAT and CANopen communication with compliance with international safety, EMC standards and STO certification.

The Gold Twitter holds a record-setting power density capability, with improved efficiency by 200%, reduced volume by 75% and increased power density by more than 400%.

The Gold Twitter is an excellent solution for applications that require very high servo performance but are very limited with space. It is rugged to meet the growing needs to mount the drives on the motor, next to the motor, or on the moving mechanical load-thus ensuring the high servo performance and saving huge costs in hardware and cabling.

The Gold Twitter runs optimally on any servo motor and operates in current, velocity, and advanced position modes, and 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 Fast and Soft Switching Technology (FASST), resulting in >99% efficiency with negligible EMI.

Easily set up and tuned using the Windows based Elmo Application Studio II 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 dynamic braking and extended I/O interface capabilities.
