Motion Control - ElmoMC

DC Trombone

Compact, Panel-mounted Network-based Servo drive (from 6 A/400 V to 16 A/800 V)

The DC Trombone is a compact, panel-mounted digital servo drive that weighs 650 g (22.9 oz) and offers up to 10 kW of continuous power.

The digital drives are based on Elmo’s advanced SimplIQ motion control technology. 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 DC Trombone can operate as a standalone 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’s Composer software tools. This Windows-based application enables users to quickly and simply configure the servo drive for optimal use with their motor. The DC Trombone, as part of the SimplIQ product line, is fully programmable with Elmo’s Composer motion control language.

The DC Trombone is available in two versions:

  • The Standard DC Trombone is a basic servo drive which operates in current, velocity and position modes including Follower and PT & PVT. It operates simultaneously via RS-232 and CANopen DS 301, DS 305, DS 402 communications and features a thirdgeneration programming environment. (The catalog number starts TRO but is not followed by an A.)
  • The Advanced DC-Trombone includes all the motion capabilities and communication options included in the Standard model, as well as advanced positioning capabilities:
    ECAM, Dual Loop and increased program size. (The catalog number starts DCTROA.)
    Both versions operate with RS-232 and CANopen communication.

DC Trombone Highlights:

  • Based on SimplIQ core motion control technology
  • Ultra-compact, highest power density
  • Highly efficient
  • Supports a wide variety of feedback sensors
  • Vector control sinusoidal commutation
  • Advanced filtering and velocity gain scheduling for enhanced dynamic performance
  • Additional cooling options, for demanding applications
    • External Heat Sink with fins (P/N with option-2)
    • External Heat Sink with fins and FAN (P/N with option-1)
