Gold Drum HV

High voltage, High Current Servo Drive
50-100A/400VDC, 35-100A/800VDC, *900VDC optional

Description

High Power Super Compact, Direct to Mains, Network-Based Servo Drive (Up to 65 kW)

The Gold Drum HV 100 A/800 V is the highest power Gold Servo Drive. Designed to operate “Direct to Mains” from a rectified 480 VAC (+10%).

The Gold DRUM HV meets the highest level of motion control application requirements, providing top servo performance, advanced networking, built-in safety and high power density, combined with a fully featured motion controller and local intelligence.

In conjunction with Elmo’s Gold Maestro, the ultimate distributed network motion controller, and the other members of Elmo’s 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.

Case studies

High-Power Servo Drives Help Hollywood Capture Explosive Action

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.
