NOVA

The NOVA servo drive is developed specifically for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) motion control applications.

This extremely lightweight controller is available in a dual-axis configuration and is one of the smallest servo drives for space applications on the market today. This versatile servo drive is ideal for high performance space applications operating in a vacuum and in a high vibration environment, where efficiency and weight are critical.

The Nova Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Servo Drive 

The Nova incorporates wide bandgap semiconductors, and a DO-178 compliant controller. It is equipped with inrush protection and a brake driver and is packaged in a rugged case which does not require additional cooling.
