Military servo drive for high power burst tasksAs the official UK distributor of Elmo Motion Control, Motion Control Products has just launched an enhanced version of Hornet military servo drives for applications requiring very high-power pulses out of a very compact package. The ultra-compact B-Hornet servo drive boosts the standard 20A/120V Hornet to 40A/120V. It weighs only 50g, yet can 'burst' over 4000 watts of power to military applications such as winglets, UAV, gimbals, turrets and other unmanned vehicles.
Based on Elmo's SimplIQ technology, the B-Hornet is also capable of operating in position, velocity and current modes and contains a wide range of feedbacks and I/O options. With Elmo Composer software, users can easily perform drive setup, configuration, tuning, analysis and programming. The drive operates on DC power and, as a PCB-mounted device, enables efficient and cost-saving implementation.
What makes the B-Hornet servo drive distinctive from other 40A drives on the market? "The huge difference is in its ultra small size, yet high power density," explains Steve McKay, MD at Motion Control Products. "Our customers are looking for a motion control solution that can meet the space limitations in their military applications, but that can still excel when it comes to power requirements and servo performance, which is the combination the B-type Hornet provides."
