Small motors pack big features into limited spaces

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Motion Control Products Ltd has introduced what it claims is the smallest Lexium MDrive integrated motor, a 42mm NEMA size 17 stepper motor with built-in electronics, delivering a large range of features to small spaces.

Industrial M12 connectors provide Lexium MDrive products with a robust interface, and IP65 certification protects against water and dust in harsher environments. Compact in size, these products are said to outperform many larger motors, delivering up to 2x the motor torque with hMT closed loop technology.

NEMA 17 Lexium MDrive products are well-suited for both new and existing applications. They fit into small spaces, while reducing system wiring by up to 40%. 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.

MDrive is a family of products integrating high-torque step motors, controller, I/O, drive electronics, encoder and closed-loop performance in compact packages. The MDrive series is suitable for a range of applications from medical, laboratory and pharmaceutical to assembly, robotics and packaging.
