ESI Motion's New Atom 8kW Servo Drive Module

POSTED 09/07/2021

New Atom Dual-Axis Servo Drive Module with CAN, CANOpen, EtherCAT, and RS422

At ESI Motion, we understand the importance of precision. Whether using a servo drive for military, robotics, automotive, aviation, or other specialized applications, our servo drives are made and designed to perform! 

As a world leader in rugged servo drives, ESI Motion’s Atom is our newest, dual-axis module, designed to operate in small applications without sacrificing any power.

Features include: 8V- 80V Bus DC Voltage, Continuous Output Current of 100A, 100A Peak Motor Current and a Output Power of 8kW. 

The dual-axis Atom is ultra-lightweight and compact (not much bigger than a quarter) and weighing it at just 1.9 oz (53.9 g) allowing it to be configured for a variety of applications where size and weight is critical.

With options to include input voltages, output current amplitudes, as well as feedback devices and features like dual or paralleled axis configuration, a wide temperature range, among many more, the applications that this rugged servo drive can be used in is seemingly endless.

Our servo drive modules are designed and manufactured in our industry-leading facility in California, USA and are in compliance with a wide range of military as well as industry standards. With its rugged, field tested controller and it’s high-efficiency wide-bandgap semiconductor-based power driver, the Atom can be incorporated into just about any project – from an attack helicopter turret drive or robotic arm positioner to radar systems and airborne antenna stabilizers.

Communications interface include:  RS422, CAN, CANOpen, EtherCAT
