Fast Settling Servo Drives Speed Wafer Testing

With high power density, onboard intelligence, and built-in connectivity, Elmo drives equip robotic camera dolly to shoot extreme live-action footage.
Computer-generated imagery (CGI) can create extraordinary scenes but for edge-of-the-seat blockbusters, there’s no substitute for live-action shooting. Live filming enables directors to change camera angles, explore alternative approaches with their actors, and even swap out dialogue. The problem is that human-operated dollies simply can’t deliver the explosive speed and acceleration demanded by cutting-edge action films. That’s why Mega Trax developed the MX 500 semi-autonomous, high-speed robotic dolly system. With the help of compact, high-power servo drives from Elmo Motion Control, the MX 500 can accelerate cameras to speeds of better than 90 mph in a matter of seconds. The best part is that the drives enable the MX 500 to execute these moves repeatably, reliably, and in the most rugged conditions imaginable.

Airborne and Battlefield Systems

In todays world, defense is a huge concern for all countries. Weapons management and troop deployment are only two of the many critical factors that can affect the outcome of field operations.Ground-based and aerial antennas are used for surveillance and reconnaissance on foot and in the air. These systems are critical for successful field operations and for human safety. Most of these systems are deployed in desert and other harsh environments, adding the requirement for dependable and reliable operation to the already numerous challenges in these applications.

Wind Turbine

Wind turbines are rotating machines that convert the wind’s kinetic energy into mechanical energy which in turn is converted into electricity.The space limitations within the wind turbine for installing the servo drives requires compact electronics with very high power motor drives to supply the necessary high torque and accurately control the speed of the blades. The Tiger and Eagle drives are designed with high power density and high performance, where safety is an essential requirement.
