Robotics technology plays a crucial role in a wide variety of industries in the modern world, driving everything from high-pressure deep-sea drilling rigs to rovers scanning the harsh surface of Mars for geological and meteorological data. In many instances, robotics must perform in corrosive, extreme operating environments and maintain pinpoint accuracy and precision in even the harshest of conditions. At ESI Motion, we are proud to create world-class servo drives to serve robotic systems in a variety of applications and industries, and across all of our products, we strive to maintain peerless quality, performance, and reliability.

Ruggedized Servo Drives with Unparalleled Space Efficiency

Robotic systems often operate where humans cannot, traversing both the depths of the ocean and the cold surface of other planets. To operate effectively in these environments, every component of a robotic system must be optimized to perform in even the most extreme environments. At ESI Motion, we ruggedize all of our servo drives, offering best-in-class performance in the most hazardous operating environments in the world and in space. Our servo drives are capable of withstanding temperatures as low as -41º C and high as 71º C, as well as operating in high-pressure environments or the vacuum of space. We also provide military-grade casings with our servo drives capable of withstanding harsh, corrosive chemicals. No matter where you need your robotic system to operate, ESI Motion servo drives will deliver consistent, world-class performance.

In addition to harsh operating environments, space efficiency is often mission-critical for robotic applications. Many robotic systems need to be compact and light, and robotic systems often have a multitude of motor systems, some controlling small, single function motors. For these cases, ESI Motion is proud to offer some of the smallest, most powerful servo drive modules in the world. Our Mighty Mite and Single Axis Mite offer unparalleled space efficiency and power density, providing best-in-class performance in a highly compact design. Our Single Axis Mite, the smallest drive we offer, packs 2 kilowatts of output power and an electrical speed of up to 75,000 RPM in a 1.46oz casing that is almost as small as a matchbook.
