Captive shaft electric cylinders are now available for Schneider Electric’s Lexium MDrive (LMD) integrated motor products feature captive shaft electric cylinders. The motors are designed to integrate motor, controls, and electric cylinder to deliver linear motion. The Lexium MDrive series integrates 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.
