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.
