Series of miniature servoamplifiers are for dc and brushless dc motors and incorporate custom mixed analog/digital ICs and a hybridized power stage. The basic configuration is a current mode amplifier, and no trimmers are used in the basic version. The products meet UL508c and the relevant CE regulations. The power stage is implemented on a single ceramic substrate, and this design enables high thermal conductivity, high current carrying capacity, and mechanical strength.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
