Industry standard M12 circular connectors facilitate fast implementation of Lexium MDrive products in new and existing systems and equipment. The compact, robust Lexium MDrive product package is even more industrialized with the introduction of standard M12 connectors. The circular connectors are currently available with programmable motion control RS-422/485 communications in 2 NEMA motor sizes: 23 & 34. To learn more, go to the Lexium MDrive M12 overview page . Lexium MDrive high torque step motors are integrated with drives from 12 up to 70 VDC, controller, I/O, and internal encoder. And their closed loop performance can replace servos in lower speed applications, without the high cost and complexity of servomotors. The compact all-in-one design of Lexium MDrive products saves space, reduces wiring and improves machine reliability — meeting the needs of expanding markets with robust, innovative technology that benefits a wide range of motion applications.
