Gold Maestro

The Intelligent Motion Controller for Any Machine

Elmo’s Gold Maestro is an advanced network based, multi-axis machine motion controller. The Gold Maestro controls any multi-axis scenario, from simple point-to-point motion to complete multi-axis coordinated or synchronized motion. Elmo’s Gold Maestro is based on years of industrial expertise in motion control engineering and on the most advanced algorithms in the industry.

When paired with Elmo’s Gold Line of servo drives, our distributed motion control system offers the highest results in the market.


Achieve Your Application Goals with Ease

Gold Maestro makes today’s most advanced multi-axis motion control capabilities available to virtually any type of machine, creating advanced motion control solutions with easy and cost effective integration, thanks to less hardware and less cabling.

The unifi development platform offers complete compatibility with known standardized networking and communication protocols, making them accessible to beginners and experienced programmers alike.

Networking Standards

The Gold Maestro is based on EtherCAT and CANopen networking standards for

precise multi-axis control. Motion standards are based on the DS-301, DS-402, DS-406, and other motion standards. IOs and bus peripherals are also supported.

Programming and API Standards

Fast implementation is enabled using high-level, multi-axis programming environments such as IEC 61131-3, Microsoft .NET, Win32, Native C/C++ programming using the PLCopen for Motion API, and macro language.
