Gold Duo

Compact, Panel-mount Network-based Servo Drive with Two Axes (Up to 20 A/100 V)

Up to 2 x 1.6 kW of continuous power

The Gold Duo is a compact, wall-mounted integrated digital servo drive solution that contains two drives in a single product. It weighs just 479 g (16.9 oz) and offers up to 2 x 1.6 kW of continuous power or 2 x 3.2 kW of peak power.

The solution operates under a single power supply and is designed for applications with up to two axes. The Gold Duo has a fully featured motion controller and local intelligence.

This advanced, high power density servo drive provides top performance, advanced networking and built-in safety, as well as a fully featured motion controller and local intelligence. The Gold Duo is powered by a single 12 V – 95 V isolated DC power source (not included) and a “smart” control-supply algorithm enables the drive to operate with only one power supply with no need for an auxiliary power supply for the logic.

In conjunction with the Gold Maestro, the ultimate distributed network motion controller, and the other members of the Gold Line of intelligent servo drives, state-of-the-art solutions for the most challenging multi-axis motion applications can be easily implemented, with a short development cycle while maintaining high performance.

Gold Duo Highlights:

  • Gold Line core motion control technology
  • Ultra-compact, highest power density
  • Highly efficient, high bandwidth performance
  • Multiple communication options: EtherCAT, USB, Ethernet
  • Supports a wide variety of feedback sensors
  • Advanced filtering and gain scheduling options for enhanced dynamic performance
  • Vector control sinusoidal commutation
