Motion Control - ElmoMC
Gold Guitar

Super Compact, Network-based Servo Drive (Up to 50 A/100 V and 20 A/200 V)

A uniquely flexible drive with unmatched power density

The Gold Guitar provides top servo performance, advanced networking and built-in safety, all in a small PCB-mountable package. The Gold Guitar features the industry’s most comprehensive motion controller and local intelligence.

Weighing only 212 g (7.47 oz.), the Gold Guitar operates on DC power as a standalone device, or as part of a multi-axis system in a distributed configuration on a real-time network.

Like all Gold Line products, it is easily configured and tuned using the Elmo Application Studio (EAS) software environment and is fully programmable with the Elmo motion control language.

The Gold Guitar is available in a variety of models with multiple power rating options, multiple communication options, feedback options and I/O configuration possibilities.

Gold Guitar Highlights:

  • Gold Line core motion control technology
  • Ultra-compact, with the highest power density in its class
  • Drives any servo motors, up to 5000 W continuous and 10,000 W peak power
  • Field Bus Communication: EtherCAT, CANopen
  • USB, Ethernet, RS-232
  • Supports a wide variety of feedback sensors
  • Advanced filtering and gain scheduling options for enhanced dynamic performance
  • Extremely efficient, over 99%
