Integrated motor with Ethernet connectivity

Integrated motor with Ethernet connectivity

As the official distributor of Schneider Electric Motion USA, Motion Control Products is pleased to announce that networking over EthernetTCP/IP via industrial M12 circular connectors is now available in Lexium MDrive integrated motor systems on the NEMA motor sizes 23 and 34.

M12 Lexium MDrive products integrate stepper motor, controller, I/O and drive electronics with closed loop performance in a compact package ideal for many motion applications. High torque step motors are integrated with drives from 12 up to 70V DC, controller, I/O, and internal encoder. In certain applications, LMD closed loop performance can replace servomotors, lowering cost and reducing complexity.

MDrive products with EtherNet/IP also include the protocol stacks for Profinet IO, Modbus/TCP and MCode/TCP for use as a programmable controller over Ethernet. EtherNet/IP is the most widely used industrial Ethernet solution for factory automation. Developed by Rockwell Automation, and managed by the Open DeviceNet Vendors Association (ODVA), EtherNet/IP provides a complete set of services and messages for control, synchronisation, safety, motion and data exchange.

Lexium MDrive Ethernet products support EtherNet/IP as an adapter class device capable of implicit and explicit messaging with remote I/O on-board these integrated motion products.
