Elmo drive can be mounted anywhere; in the motor, in the machine, on the load, or even attached to a moving part.

The development time and resources required to design new servo applications can be reduced, or even eliminated, using the new Elmo Solo Whistle from Inmoco. The Solo Whistle fits into the palm of the hand, yet is a ready-to-use integrated solution designed to simply and efficiently connect Elmo's Whistle servo drive directly to an application.

The compactness of the Solo Whistle design provides unequalled flexibility for OEMs, enabling the servo drive to be mounted anywhere; in the motor, in the machine, on the load, or even attached to a moving part. This facility, by reducing cabling and installation time, cuts costs significantly, and greatly simplifies maintenance for end-users of the product.

Although highly compact, the Solo Whistle nevertheless integrates Elmo’s SimplIQ technology, which has been developed to deliver fast and powerful implementation of sophisticated motion control systems. This technology combines advanced motion control with real-time networking capabilities, and delivers a wealth of feedback options, programming capabilities and standard communication protocol support.

In addition to delivering the highest power density and efficiency, the Solo Whistle incorporates all the key features necessary for fast and problem-free integration of motors and drives into machines. The servo drive incorporates a digital motion controller that features CANopen networking, a position loop, a velocity loop, a current loop and a very wide range of feedback and I/O options. It also offers OEMs the benefits of ELMO’s Composer software. Using the Composer programming software, drive set-up, configuration, tuning and analysis are all performed quickly and easily to aid integration into machines.

Also aiding easy integration of the Solo Whistle is the wide range of feedback options available. These include Incremental Encoder - up to 20 Mega-Counts (5 Mega-Pulse) per second, Digital Halls - up to 2 KHz,  Incremental Encoder with Digital Halls for commutation  (up to 20 Mega-Counts per second for encoder),  Interpolated Analog Sine/Cosine Encoder (up to 250 KHz (analogue signal),  Resolver (Programmable 10~15 bit resolution), Tachometer and Potentiometer.
