Lexium MDrive® with Multi-turn Absolute Encoder

At an extremely competitive price, multi-turn absolute encoder expands performance of all-in-one integrated motor and electronics products without increasing their size

Marlborough, CT,  October 5, 2018

A multi-turn absolute encoder feature is now available integrated with all-in-one motor and electronics Lexium MDrive® products. Without increasing product size, NEMA size 17 (42mm) & 23 (57mm) rotary and linear stepper motors with integrated electronics deliver multi-turn absolute encoder benefits in a compact size and at an extremely competitive price.

Now with a 1000 line count multi-turn absolute encoder, robust Lexium MDrive (LMD) products continue leading the trend of integrating more components into single units to improve operations while reducing costs. Providing increased performance with no increase in product size, LMD products with absolute encoders can detect and store position information even when powered down. Sensors and homing routines can be eliminated and setup time at system startup reduced. To learn more about the performance benefits of absolute encoders please visit https://motion.schneider-electric.com/dloads/white-papers-and-ebooks/ for a white paper on absolute encoders.

 

LMD products with absolute encoders include a fully programmable motion controller and may be operated in several modes including: closed-loop, torque control, and variable current control for energy savings and reduced heating. Available communication protocols include EtherNet/IP, Profinet, ModbusTCP, CANopen, and serial
RS-422/485. To learn more, locate a distributor in your area at https://motion.schneider-electric.com/contacts/
