Lexium MDrive Integrated Motor + Drive/Controller

Lexium MDrive Integrated Motor + Drive/Controller

Schneider Electric has been continuously developing its Close-loop hMTechnology, which blends stepper and servo motor benefits, and now launched the next generation of MDrive Hybrid® Integrated: NEW Lexium Mdrive integrated motors. The Lexium MDrive LMD is an integrated motor + drive with / without the programmable controller as an option, which offers numerous enhanced features for a complete motion control solution.

Lexium MDrive Features & Benefits

  • NEMA size: NEMA17, 23, 34
  • Delivering smooth operation at low speed
  • Performance at high speed
  • High starting torque
  • Torque mode
  • Protection against over voltage and DC switching
  • Isolated communication and I/O
  • LED status indicators
  • Optional industrial M12 circular connectors
  • IP65 option at no extra cost
  • Coomunication modes:
    • Pulse/Direction Input
    • Programmable Motion Control
    • CANOpen
    • EtherNet TCP/IP (including EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, Profinet and MCode/TCP)

Within the same compact integrated package, Lexium MDrive products with closed loop hMTechnology deliver enhanced motor performance including:

  • Lower energy consumption and cooler operating temperatures
  • Higher torque from smaller motors for economic efficiency
  • Real time closed-loop control, eliminating loss of synchronisation
  • Lower cost option to servo motors in performance range
  • 4 years warranty

Communications interface

The LMD Lexium MDrive integrated motor uses an isolated RS-422/485 communication interface with selectable BAUD rate ranging from 4.8 to 115 kb per second via a standard 9-pin D-subminiature connector. An optional USB to RS-422/485 Comm converter with cable is available and is compatible with all 32 and 64 bit operating systems.

For ease of use, an intuitive user software suite is provided for all product versions. And all Lexium MDrive products are backed by an extended warranty that doubles the previous 2-year coverage period to 4-years.

Typical applications: Packaging machines (e.g. bottles wrapped, bottles capping, strapping and bundling); Labeling machines, Handling machines, scanning (Medical or industrial X-Y positioning gantries), peristaltic pumps and laboratory automation.

There are three motor frame sizes available: NEMA 17 (42mm), NEMA 23 (57mm) and NEMA 34 (86mm) with four different models/functionalities:
