The smallest Lexium MDrive integrated motor, 1.7”/42mm NEMA size 17, delivers a large range of features to small spaces. Features that now include an IP65 rated version with industrial M12 connectors. M12 Lexium MDrive products provide a robust interface, with IP65 certification for protection against water and dust in harsher environments. Compact in size, these feature-rich products outperform many larger motors, delivering up to 2x the motor torque with hMT closed loop technology. hMT never loses functional control of the motor, so derating a motor’s max torque by 50% to prevent stalling can be eliminated.
NEMA 17 Lexium MDrive products are well-suited for both new and existing applications. They fit neatly into small spaces, while reducing system wiring by up to 40%. And interfacing numerous network communication protocols enables interoperability with devices from various vendors. Network options include EtherNet/IP, ModbusTCP, Profinet, CANopen, and serial RS-422/485 with programmable motion control and pulse/direction input.
