SuperNova Servo Drive


SuperNova Servo Drive

Building off the strong success of the award-winning Nova Servo Drive, comes SuperNova, the next great servo drive designed and manufactured in the United States specifically for Space and Low Earth Orbit applications and critical missions.

This extremely lightweight and radiation tolerant controller is available in a dual-axis configuration and is one of the smallest servo drives for space applications on the market today. SuperNova is ideal for high performance space applications operating in harsh environment of space, including radiation, high vacuum and extreme temperatures.
