September 10, 2015 — Lexium MDrive NEMA size 23 are now available with premium high torque stepper motors as an alternative to standard motors. This option delivers up to 50% more torque, boosting the performance of Lexium MDrive integrated products to an even higher performance level while maintaining compact size and format. 

Closed loop performance of Lexium MDrive products, while eliminating possible motor stalling, also delivers continuous torque at low speeds; eliminates tuning; reduces heat and energy usage with variable current control. Wiring is reduced by up to 40%, and installation time cut 25% by replacing multiple individual components.

Communication protocols include EtherNet/IP, ModbusTCP, Profinet, CANopen, and serial RS-422/485 with programmable motion control and pulse/direction input. 

 

“Increasing torque performance without increasing Lexium MDrive product size represents a real advantage for applications where space is a premium — such as medical and life science. These products are also great for industrial applications, especially the IP65 rated version with circular M12 connectors. We are winning business daily, replacing servos, and even some gearboxes, by delivering the required torque in a lower cost, space saving package,” according to Paul Kling, VP Sales, SEM USA.
