Miniature servo drive performs under pressure in deep sea ROV testing
29 November 2019
All Oceans Engineering’s fly-out ROV has been cleared to operate in some of the deepest parts of the ocean thanks to the pressure capabilities of an Elmo Motion Control miniature servo drive.
Pressure testing on a new remotely operated vehicle (ROV) has demonstrated that a special version 5.5kW servo drive from Elmo Motion Control can withstand 700 bar, equivalent to a depth of 7,000 metres.
The fly-out ROV built by All Oceans Engineering (AOE) is an auxiliary vehicle which assists larger ROVs with complex tasks on the seabed. Thanks to the high-power density, small footprint and pressure performance of Elmo’s Gold Twitter drive it can operate in some of the world’s deepest oceans.
