Automation Libraries

Rapid application development with automation libraries for popular PACs and PLCs

Add-on instructions designed to simplify the integration of the Lexium MDrive with popular models of PACs. The Lexium Mdrive Ethernet TCP/IP plus these Automation Libraries provide an efficient and easy path to implement an interface between the LMD and a PAC.

Increase your code efficiency and decrease your development time with support for the following functions:

  • Relative and absolute moves
  • Jogging
  • Homing
  • Read inputs
  • Write outputs

The libraries provide support for the following protocols and PACS:

  • EtherNet/IP: Rockwell Automation ControlLogix and CompactLogix families
  • Profinet: Siemens S7 series
Lexium MDrive Absolute Encoder products may have unexpected or unintended motion if used with Automation Libraries.

  • Do not use the Automation Libraries with Lexium MDrive Absolute Encoder products.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death or serious injury.
