Elmo Motion Control Doubles the Power of the World's Smallest Servo Drive

The unprecedented, ultra-high power density drives deliver over 10,000w of qualitative power to match the most demanding smart applications

NASHUA, N.H. - Nov. 29, 2017 - Elmo Motion Control (Elmo), a global market leader of advanced motion solutions designed to make smart machines smarter, has doubled the power of its ultra-small, already powerful servo drive, the Gold Twitter, to suit the most demanding applications in the era of Industry 4.0. With a weight of only 33 grams and continuous currents of 160° (80V) and 140° (100V), the new Double Gold Twitter delivers over 10,000w of qualitative power, proving a great fit for applications that require a reduced footprint and high power, such as large robotic vehicles, antennas and tracking systems, high power machine tooling, large printer rolls and more.

The Double Gold Twitter is among the smallest STO-certified (IEC 61800-5-2, SIL-3) servo drives on the market. It features Elmos proprietary and innovative Fast and Soft Power Switching Technology (FASST), which ensures optimal power-device switching and delivers over 99-percent efficiency and negligible electro-magnetic interference (EMI).This extreme efficiency allows for its minature size, meaning that the Double Gold Twitter can be placed on a moving load, on the motor or inside the motor, helping engineers save space, improve machine performance, reduce cables and eliminate electrical cabinets, while delivering unprecedented power.

Haim Monhait, CEO, Elmo Motion Control, said, "The Double Gold Twitter builds upon Elmo's philosophy of creating leaner machinery that performs with the highest speed and accuracy possible—a testament to our commitment to ‘Cutting Costs by Technology. Our robust motion control solutions are integrated at the heart of the machines, enabling them to function with the highest speed and precision possible. With unmatched capabilities and power, Elmo's products and technology support advanced motion systems both today and into the future."
Elmo answers the need for more advanced and innovative motion control solutions by delivering technology that ensures higher quality, greater efficiency and more flexibility for smart manufacturing. Elmo's advanced solutions are used in a wide range of motion control applications that require high-performance servo operations, including automation, robotics and AGVs.
Representatives from Elmo will be at Stand #4-361 at the SPS IPC Drives confernece in Nuremberg, Germany, Oct. 28-30, 2018.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
