The demand for high-speed cameras and optronic systems is increasing in major markets such as healthcare, entertainment, automotive, military and research. OEMs are designing optimized products to deliver the highest quality image capture possible. To achieve this, the system must be very responsive and have large bandwidth to guarantee images are captured correctly during time-critical operations. These key requirements demand performance from the system’s servo drives. Small, compact and flexible designs, which operate under extreme environmental conditions may also be significantly important requirements.
The Everest Series servo drives are ultra-miniature, high performance, compact and versatile. Cutting-edge transistor technology enables the highest power density without sacrificing efficiency, limiting the amount of energy lost through heat dissipation, while minimizing total size. Fully optimized motion control and communication layers result in ultra-fast control loops with robust communication protocols including EtherCAT, CANopen, or SPI – necessary in optronic applications with time-critical requirements. The Everest Series also has a harsh environment product variant, tested under conditions of extended temperature ranges (extremely low and/or high), thermal and mechanical shock, severe vibration, and humidity.
Most optronic systems are size critical, therefore small, lightweight servo drives, with flexible integration capabilities, are the optimal solution. The Everest Series servo drives offer ready-to-use, pluggable designs for PCB assembly, combined with the compact, miniature size needed for tight and easy integration. When extreme durability is required, opting for the Everest Series product variant may eliminate the need for protective enclosures with heating or cooling elements. The Everest Series servo drives are designed to continuously perform, withstanding the harsh environments without sacrificing performance.
