Servo drives for space-limited applications

Ingenia, part of Celera Motion (Novanta), released the Everest servo drive series with CANopen-connectivity.

The Everest Core drive is performed as a plug-in module, which can be integrated in a PCB (printed circuit board) from a third company to create a customized motion control application. Everest Net drives are based on the Everest Core technology and include CANopen communications. The CANopen interface complies with CiA 301 and CiA 402 version 4.0. The following operation modes are supported: cyclic synchronous position, cyclic synchronous velocity, cyclic synchronous current, profile position (trapezoidal and s-curves), profile velocity, interpolated position, and homing. Layer Setting Services (LSS) as specified in CiA 305 are also implemented. This allows to configure the node-ID via the CAN network.

The Everest XCR servo drive module was designed together with robotics developers to be integrated in space-limited applications. It weights 38 g and measures 29 mm x 42 mm x 23 mm including mating connectors. After integration in a robotic joint or motor, the drive has to be wired and configured to get running.

The drives are dedicated for brushed and brushless DC motors. The power supply of up to 48 VDC is possible. Digital encoder, digital Hall sensors, Biss-C, and SSI interfaces are available. Motionlab configuration software is shipped for free with each Everest servo drive. Typical applications include robot joints, wearable robots, unmanned ground vehicles, aerial vehicles, etc.
