  • Drives

    • Lexium 05 servo drives

    • Lexium 05 is a compact servo drive for AC synchronous servo motors up to 6 kW. The Autotuning function allows for simple setting of the controller parameters. The standard version of the servo drive comes with two fieldbus interfaces (CANopen and Modbus), a signal interface with two analogue +/-10 V inputs and 8 digital inputs/outputs, an interface for pulse/direction or A/B signal inputs or encoder simulation. This way, the drive can be used in various system environments. Mains filter, ballast resistor and the safety function "Safe stop" (stop according to categories 0 and 1 as per EN60204-1) are integrated.
    • Lexium 15 servo drives

    • Lexium 15 servo drives and servo motors are dynamic drives for machines of various power classes and supply voltages. This line of devices was specially designed for torque, velocity and position control of BSH and BDH servo motors. The combination of motor and drive is particularly suitable for applications involving high-precision, dynamic positioning.
    • SD3 stepper motor drives

For maximum flexibility, the servomotors are compatible with the standard servo connection dimensions. The AC synchronous servomotors are equipped with an absolute sensor system: SinCos® Singleturn (SRS, SKS) or SinCos® Multiturn (SRM, SKM). The encoder system with the Hiperface® interface enables auto-initialisation of the motor and current controller parameters. This greatly simplifies the commissioning procedure of the drive system.
    • Stepper motors

    • Schneider Electric Motion provides a complete range of 2-phase and 3-phase stepper motors.

      Schneider Electric Motion 3-phase stepper motors are extremely robust and maintenance-free. They carry out precise, incremental movements as controlled by a stepper motor drive. A stepper motor drive system consists of a stepper motor and a matching stepper motor drive. Maximum performance of the complete drive system requires the motor and the drive to be perfectly adapted to each other. Depending on the stepper motor drive, the motors can be operated at very high resolutions.

      A complete range of options such as rotation monitoring and holding brake as well as robust planetary gearboxes with very little backlash extends the application range.

      Schneider Electric Motion 3-phase stepper motors are available in standard and Ex versions (EEx d IIC T4).
