Schneider Electric Linear actuators with stepper motors
Lexium MDrive (LMD) linear actuators integrate NEMA sizes 17 and 23 1.8° two-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 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, Modbus TCP, CANopen and serial RS-422/485.
