Enhanced Integrated Servo Motor for Advanced Sensor Positioning


Artemis is the first product in Overview’s Servotorq II series of second-generation, Integrated Servo Motors. Retaining all the advantages of the original Servotorq’s proven, direct-drive technology, Servotorq II features significant enhancements and performance improvements resulting from a new motor design, current vector control and a unique new control scheme.

As with all Servotorq motors, Artemis eliminates the need for a separate servo motor, drive controller and cabling, combining BLDC motors, advanced control electronics, high-performance servos and precision rotary position encoders into a fully integrated, direct-drive, motion control solution. With a peak torque of 3.0Nm, Artemis delivers 50% higher torque than previous Servotorq motors, yet retains a compact footprint, making it ideal for integration into a wide variety of sensor pointing applications. Integrated drive control electronics and software provide rapid and precise positional control, with up to 0.005° repeatability and true zero backlash as well as closed-loop velocity and acceleration control with jerk limit. Artemis has a wide dynamic speed range of between 0.05°/s and 720°/s.

Servotorq II enhancements include:

  • OTBRC Servo Technology for exceptional servo performance
  • Simplified-Tuning
  • Power Protection & Diagnostics
  • Absolute Position Feedback
  • Expansion Connector
  • Magnetic Induction Braking
  • Designed for driving autonomous solutions

Artemis is directly interchangeable with the Atlas motor, making it ideal for existing integrators looking to enhance their positioning solution further.
