ElmoPlatinumSeries400x275Elmo Motion Control, which develops and manufactures motion control technologies, announced the commercial launch of its Platinum series servo drives, which include “the most advanced servo functionality and functional safety available today.”

An evolution of the company’s Gold line, the Platinum series is designed to meet OEM’s needs for safer, smarter, smaller, and faster servo drives with higher functionality, the company said in a statement. The series provides solutions for applications that require high-quality motion, including medical devices, robotics, material handling, semiconductor, laser processing, printing, and inspection, to name a few.

The line features ultra-fast EtherCAT networking and processing, which delivers faster cycling and higher synchronization, with negligible jitters and near-zero latency, Elmo said. The higher processing power enables faster data handling, a larger memory and an endless real-time recorder to support high-performance applications.

The drives also hold safety certifications IEC 61800-5-2 SIL-3, Cat4 PL-e, and have a set of smart functional safety features, including over-the-network safety and optional rich safety I/Os, supported by Elmo’s advanced safety software. The line also includes one of the world’s smallest Functional Safety and Functional Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE)-certified servo drives.

“The new Platinum line empowers manufacturers to design and produce machines that are very safe for users and the environment, and also optimize machine performance,” said Haim Monhait, CEO of Elmo Motion Control. “Our smart functional safety features dramatically reduce the need for external safety components, streamlining machine safety certification. With Platinum servo drives, our customers can manufacture smaller and safer machines, with lower costs and shorter time to market.”

The line includes the Platinum Quartet, which was introduced last year, and has won awards for innovation and best product from Modern Manufacturing and Control Engineering China, respectively.
