IMS Lexium MdriveLexium MDrive

Lexium MDrive is a robust rotary stepper motor integrated with drive, controller and encoderform a single, compact unit that is quick to install and easy to use. Lexium MDrive products offer interchangeable ease to system designers. Each product size has one common product envelope. So choosing different communication protocols — whether it is RS-422/485, EtherNet or CANopen — does not change the product footprint. Product lengths vary with choice of motor stack length in NEMA motor sizes: 17, 23 & 34 (42, 57 & 85 mm).

Lexium MDrive with circular M12 connectors
Circular industrial connectors in standard M12 configurations provide a robust, durable interface for demanding applications. Available in NEMA 23 and 34 motor sizes.

MDrive integrated motor brand, is now available with IP65 rating. The IP65 certification provides an additional level of protection in an already rugged product line.  And, with no change to current product prices, customers will be receiving this feature for free!

Networking over EthernetTCP/IP or CANopen via industrial M12 circular connectors is also available in Lexium MDrive® integrated motor systems, NEMA motor sizes 23 & 34.
