Celera Motion, a business unit of Novanta, announced the introduction of the world’s smallest and, it claims, fastest servo drive. The Everest S, the latest addition to the Everest Series, is about 30% smaller than its predecessor, making it the world’s smallest servo drive. It also delivers bus latency reduced to 1 cycle, which according to Celera makes Everest S the fastest servo drive on the market today.
The Everest S includes all features of earlier Everest servo drives, plus Dual BiSS-C feedback support. Designed with 3 kW of power and a starting weight of 18 grams, the Everest S is designed for applications such as surgical robots, exoskeletons, Pan Tilt gimbals, collaborative robots, legged robots and autonomous mobile robots.
High-speed SPI bus communication is available for optimized EtherCAT/CANopen multi-axis architectures. Everest S also has been designed to meet industrial functional safety standards to ensure continuous safe operation.
