Schneider Lexium Captive Shaft Electric Cylinder

Integrated motor, drive electronics and linear mechanicals

Captive shaft electric cylinders are now available for Lexium MDrive® (LMD) integrated motor products. Quiet, clean and compact, these LMD products integrate motor, controls, and electric cylinder to deliver linear motion. And, unlike pneumatics, there is no need for compressed air, eliminating that expense, maintenance and noise.

Lexium MDrive products integrate 1.8° 2-phase stepper motors with onboard drive electronics, controller, and encoder which includes an Absolute Encoder option. Fully programmable motion controllers can communicate via EthernetTCP/IP, CANopen, or RS-422/485. Products may be operated in several modes including closed-loop, torque control, and variable current control for energy savings and reduced heating. This high degree of integration, which now includes an optional electric cylinder, can reduce machine complexity, size and cost in many motion applications.
