Schneider Electric announces the release of Lexium MDrive (LMD) linear actuators, delivering clean, quiet linear motion to a wide range of applications from medical to packaging. These compact motion products integrate robust motor, electronics and linear mechanicals, providing machine builders with solutions that can reduce their system cost, design and assembly time. For more LMD linear product details, visit our new products page or go directly to the MDrive product page.
LMD linear actuators integrate NEMA size 17 and 23, 1.8°, 2-phase stepper motors with an external threaded lead screw. This screw is integral to the motor’s rotor, rotating to move a nut attached to a load axially along the threaded shaft. A wide range of lead screw options are offered as standard, with custom solutions also available.
Integrated LMD linear products may include fully programmable motion controllers, encoders and closed-loop performance. Available communication protocols include EtherNet/IP, Profinet, ModbusTCP, CANopen, and serial RS-422/485.
PackExpo, taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Center September 24-27, will debut the new Lexium MDrive linear actuator products. Please stop by our booth, #6092, to see working demos and discuss your application needs with our motion experts. Learn more on our trade show page.
