Gold Drum 360A / 100V, 430A / 80V

Ultra High Current Super Compact

The Gold Drum 360/430 is a series of super compact digital servo drives, highly resilient and operating from a DC Power Voltage Input source. They are designed to deliver the highest density of power and intelligence. The Gold Drum 360A/100V delivers up to 360 A operating from a DC bus of 11VDC- 95VDC, while the Gold Drum430A/80V delivers up to 430 A operating from a power voltage bus of 11VDC- 75VDC. The logic/ control supply input is a DC voltage in the range of 11VDC- 95VDC. Both drives naturally withstand the surges (40V & 100V) and spikes (250V) that might occur in battery operated systems.

The digital drives are part of Elmo’s advanced Gold Line. They operate from a DC power source in current, velocity, position and advanced position modes, in conjunction with a permanent-magnet synchronous brushless motor, DC brush motor, linear motor or voice coil. They are designed for use with any type of sinusoidal and trapezoidal commutation, with vector control. The Gold Drum 360/430 can operate as a stand-alone device or as part of a multi-axis system in a distributed configuration on a real-time network.

The drives are easily set up and tuned using Elmo Application Studio (EASII) software tools. This Windows-based application enables users to quickly and simply configure the servo drive for optimal use with their motor. The Gold Drum 360/430, as part of the Gold Line, is fully programmable with Elmo’s motion control language.
