Celera Motion today announced its Capitan Series of premium Ingenia servo drives. The Capitan Series is designed for surgical robots, exoskeletons, robotic joints, flat actuators, end-effectors, haptics and more.
The Capitan Series offers three servo drives – the XCR, NET and CORE. The XCR is a ready-to-use version, while NET and CORE are pluggable module versions. You can check out the spec sheet below for further comparison of the three models.
The Captain Series servo drives weigh as little as 18 grams and offer standby power consumption down to 1.12 watts to deliver up 99% efficiency. Celera said standby power consumption was reduced to minimize heat generation and firmware architecture is designed to accommodate PWM frequencies up to 200 kHz with maximum bus voltage utilization, enabling low inductance motor control.
Communication options for the Capitan Series include EtherCAT, CANopen and SPI. Celera said its supports EtherCAT with a bus latency down to 2 cycles as well as CANopen and hi-speed SPI bus communication with command update rates up to 20 kHz. This improves the cost-efficiency of embedding multiple axis into a single PCB, according to Celera.
“Robotics is a very competitive market, evolving rapidly, and requiring best-in-class servo drive technology,” said Marc Vila, Business Director for Ingenia Servo Drives at Celera Motion. “Application-focused servo drives like Capitan, where we have included features specifically required for those market segments, dramatically help engineers to accelerate their designs, be more competitive and keep the focus on their core business.”
