Ethernet Communication Protocols for Integrated Motor Products
Lexium MDrive integrated motor products are now available with two proven, widely used industrial fieldbus technologies: Ethernet protocol including EtherNet/IP and ModbusTCP; and CANopen protocol. Lexium MDrive fieldbus products deliver the same benefits – including compact design, reduced wiring, improved machine reliability – to robust networking systems for industrial automation.
hMT closes the feedback loop, which eliminates many negatives traditionally associated with stepper systems and offers a lower cost solution for a range of servo motor applications. A variable current/variable torque control feature can also reduce heat, save energy and lower operating costs in a wide variety of motion applications.
