Developing Ground Vehicle Servo Drives

Engineering advanced military ground defense solutions is a pressing need in today’s world. Gaining the advantage in global conflicts stems as much from technological superiority as does sheer strength. Ground defense vehicles require components that provide consistent and dependable operation. These parts must also meet an exacting standard of quality, performance, and functionality in order to safeguard the lives of our nation’s armed forces. ESI has worked with defense organizations to provide servo drives which meet or exceed the requirements of defense applications. ESI servo drives feature ruggedized packaging for extreme performance in any situation.

Commercial ground vehicles require some of the same exacting standards in terms of reliability and ruggedness. With more self-driving vehicles being designed, the demand for optimized size, weight and power with a very high reliability factor are now much higher.

Exceptional Servo Drives Offer Engineering Solutions

ESI servo drives and control systems are designed to comply with a wide range of defense specifications. Our drives feature several advantages that make these components perfect for ground defense and commercial vehicle applications:

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

  • Lightweight Design – Many applications require a system 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 heat and cold to sand and snow.

  • 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 defense applications and build our solution to be suitable for these critical uses.
