Gold DC Trombone

Panel-mounted network based compact Servo drive from 6 A/400 V to 16 A/800 V)

The Gold 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.

This advanced, high power density servo drive is designed to operate "Direct to Mains" from a high voltage DC power supply of up to 400 VDC or 800 VDC, without the need for a transformer. It provides top performance, advanced networking and built in safety, as well as a fully featured motion controller and local intelligence. The Gold DC Trombone is powered by a single 18 V – 30 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 DC Trombone servo drive highlights:

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