Schneider: Integrated Motors Communicate Via Ethernet TCP/AP

Jan. 14, 2015
Networking over EthernetTCP/IP via industrial M12 circular connectors is now available in Lexium MDrive integrated motor systems, NEMA motor sizes 23 & 34.

EtherNet/IP, ModbusTCP and Profinet are all software selectable from one product, delivering system flexibility to a wide range of automation machine builders. They are easy to implement into new or existing systems, reducing parts count and machine complexity. Setup is simplified with M12 circular connectors, and users select in software from EtherNet/IP, ModbusTCP or Profinet. Units are available for RS-422/485 (in either pulse/direction or programmable motion control versions), Ethernet or CANopen). The 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 70 VDC, controller, I/O, and internal encoder. In certain applications, LMD closed loop performance can replace servomotors, reducing both cost and complexity.
