Lexium MDrive

Robust Lexium MDrive products integrate 1.8° 2-phase stepper motors with onboard drive electronics, a controller with up to 8 I/O.

Feedback options include open loop, or closed loop with a 1000 line (4000 counts/rev) incremental or multi-turn absolute encoder. Both encoder options feature  hMT closed loop performance.

This high degree of integration can reduce machine complexity, size and cost in many stepper and servo motor applications. Lexium MDrive delivers exceptional performance and smoothness with advanced current control. Ideal for machine builders who want an optimized motor with on-board electronics, Lexium MDrive products are well suited for industrial applications.
Supported communication protocols include:

  • Ethernet: EtherNet/IP, Profinet, ModbusTCP
  • CANopen
  • RS-422/485

Features include:

  • Open loop, or closed loop with either an incremental or multi-turn absolute encoder
  • Built-in protection circuitry
  • IP65 rating with M12 connectors
  • Input power range from +12 up to +70 VDC
  • Auxiliary logic power supply input
  • 20 microstep resolutions to 51,200 steps/rev
  • Programmable motor run and hold currents
  • Extended product warranty

Motor sizes include NEMA 17, 23 & 34, all available in 3 stack lengths. Premium high torque motors are also an option. Products are offered in two connector versions:

  • Pluggable Style – includes mating connectors for direct wiring
  • M12 Circular Connector Style – IP65-rated against water and dust ingress

Lexium MDrive (LMD) Linear Motion Products

Robust Lexium MDrive (LMD) linear motion products integrate either a NEMA 17 or NEMA 23 stepper motor with external shaft linear actuator or captive shaft electric cylinder. Linear motion is produced by ACME screw/nut systems mounted to a motor’s driving shaft. Products include onboard drive electronics and controller with up to 8 I/O. Feedback options include open loop or closed loop with a 1000 line (4000 count/rev) internal incremental or multi-turn absolute encoder with hMT closed loop  performance.

This high degree of integration can reduce machine complexity, size and cost in many stepper and servo motor applications. Lexium MDrive delivers exceptional performance and smoothness with advanced current control. Ideal for machine builders who want an optimized motor with onboard electronics.

Captive Shaft Electric Cylinder (eCylinder)

Quiet, clean and compact, LMD eCylinder products deliver distinct benefits, including replacing pneumatics in some applications. These products offer many distinct benefits including competitive price, high accuracy and repeatability.

External Shaft Linear Actuator

OEMs who want to reduce machine size, cost and complexity will find robust LMD Linear Actuator products deliver exceptional performance and value for many linear motion applications.

Communications and networking

Supported communication protocols include:

  • Ethernet: EtherNet/IP, Profinet, ModbusTCP
  • CANopen
  • RS-422/485
