Gold Triple Bee
The new technology is an evolution of the Gold Bee miniature servo drive. Its extreme current capability in a compact form factor make it ideal for harsh environment applications requiring high power with limited space. This may include applications such as airborne UAVs and 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 of
-40°C to 70°C, and withstands mechanical shocks of up to 20g or 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's for a missile winglet control, a ground turret control, or for 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 200k drives installed globally. "
