Share Article

The Hawk is the only ready-to-use servo drive controller for military and extended environmental conditions that exhibits ultra high power density and intelligence in an ultra compact package, delivering up to 70Amps peak current.

Elmo announced a new addition to its ExtrIQ (Extended Environmental Conditions) products line. The Hawk delivers up to 5KW of continuous qualitative power, exhibits high power density delivering up to 70 Amps peak current

"The Hawk is a military servo drive compliant with Military Standards and is designed, verified and qualified to operate in extreme environmental conditions". It is one step further in Elmo's leadership to incorporate highly efficient and super compact power density products. The Hawk supports a wide variety of feedbacks and has vector control sinusoidal commutation with advanced filtering and velocity gain scheduling for enhanced dynamic performance. Operating with a single DC bus of 11VDC -195VDC (three voltage ranges) with built-in smart control to supply back-upcapabilities it is based on SimplIQ core motion control technology

The Hawk is designed, verified and qualified to operate in extreme environmental conditions such as
•tOperating Ambient Temperature Range: -40°C to +71°C (-40°F to 160°F)
•tOperating Mechanical Vibrations: 20 Hz -2000 Hz, 14.6 g
•tOperating Altitude: -400m to 150,000m (-1,000 to 510,000 ft)
•tOperating Mechanical Shock: ±20 g
