HPD-A drive tower for Applikon motor 25 mm nose design
Head-Plate-Drive (HPD) as used by CellVessel SUB and BactoVessel SUF use coupling / tower kits for the Applikon servo motor mounting standard used by Applikon®, DasGip®, Broadley-James® and others. This concept benefits from mechanical support as to the old fashion motor. The small and most common ID25-A format is shown here.
One Applikon coupling standard exist which is used by:
- Applikon® with their own servo motor P100 weight 1,6 kilo (P310 is much too heavy for SUBs smaller than OD200)
- DasGip® with Maxon® servo motor (high efficient modern compact design)
- Broadley James with SEM and other servo motors
