The Lexium MDrive Ethernet is an integrated NEMA 23 (57 mm) high torque 1.8° stepper motor integrated with an advanced, high resolution microstepping driver and Ethernet controller with multi-protocol support and numerous enhanced features for an Industrial Ethernet or Motion Control solution.

Lexium MDrive Ethernet benefits

Ethernet has become the de-facto networking interface for industrial automation. Ethernet networking technology has progressed to the point where real-time, deterministic data transfer between components in a machine or network of machines is readily accomplished. The advantages of the Lexium MDrive Ethernet are: Multi-protocol support Use off-the-shelf networking hardware: switches, routers and cabling Interoperability with an array of readily available components Compatibility with PLCs from: Rockwell Automation-Allen Bradley, Omron, Schneider Electric MODBUS/TCP and EtherNet/IP make up 52% of industrial Ethernet networks Programmability using the proprietary MCode programming and control language in an Ethernet network, eliminating the need for complicated serial multidrop networks using RS-422/485.
