The new technology is an evolution of the Gold Bee miniature servo drive. Its extreme current capability in a compact form factor makes it ideal for harsh environment applications requiring high power with limited space. This includes applications such as airborne UAVs, heavy-duty drones, turrets and firing stations. As with the rest of the ExtrIQ family of harsh environment products, Gold Triple Bee can operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to 70°C, and withstand mechanical shocks of up to 20g and vibrations of up to 14.6Grms (2kHz). Complying with the strictest safety, EMC, electrical and environmental standards, Gold Triple Bee delivers up to 270A of continuous current and up to 200V (60A). With a ~99% power conversion efficiency, it is ideal for DC/battery-operated missions.

Haim Monhait, CEO, said: “Elmo is proud to be a leader in an age where advanced motion technology is driving some of the world’s most critical missions. Whether it is providing control for a missile winglet, a ground turret or an underwater thruster, our servo performance and minimal form factor play a crucial role. Gold Triple Bee meets this global need ‒ and allows the platform to operate with maximum efficiency and accuracy, even in extremely harsh environments. ExtrIQ technology has been performing day and night for over 25 years in the air, on the ground, and underwater, with over 200,000 drives installed globally.“
