Developing Unmanned Systems Servo Drives

Engineering advanced defense & exploratory solutions is a pressing need in today’s world. With the advances in the world of unmanned surveillance and other unmanned systems comes the need for more advanced servo drive and motor control systems. Unmanned systems require components that provide consistent and dependable operation. These parts must be able to operate for prolonged periods and in extreme conditions, from high pressures to extreme weather. Whether the application is a military unmanned drone, a self-driving car or a food production line, the need for precision and reliability is paramount. ESI Motion servo drives and servo drive modules are up to the task!

Exceptional Servo Drives Offer Engineering Solutions

ESI servo drives and control systems are designed to comply with a wide range of unmanned system specifications. Our drives feature several advantages that make these components especially appropriate for these types of applications:

  • Compact Size – Space on unmanned systems is very limited, so our small servo drives deliver uncompromising performance and accuracy.

  • Lightweight Design – Unmanned systems require onboard systems to be as lightweight as possible. We can provide a wide range of drives that are incredibly lightweight to ensure ease of mobility.

  • High Accuracy Resolver Feedback – Component accuracy ensures reliable performance in the most demanding environments from extreme temperatures to high vibrations.

  • Wide operating temperature range – Our extended operational temperature range goes from -55ºC to 121ºC.

  • Supports system-critical functions – For any defense product, failure can be catastrophic. ESI technicians and engineers are familiar with the demanding nature of these types of applications and build our solutions to be suitable for these critical uses.


Maintaining Certification Standards

The AS9100D certification process helps ensure accurate documentation and a higher level of quality assessment. Complying with the standards set by this process helps ensure consistency throughout every stage of engineering, design and delivery. ESI is very familiar with the AS9100D process and will provide all necessary support for this process in every system we design and manufacture.

In addition to the AS9100D certification, we also conform to other requirements to include:

  • MIL-C-5541E
  • MIL-STD-810F
  • DO-160
  • MIL-STD-464A
  • MIL-C-5015
  • DO-254
  • MIL-STD-1472
  • MIL-STD-461
  • DO-178C DAL A
