- TLM 2 is a powerful multi-axis motion controller with
integrated soft PLC. The controller can synchronously control up to four
drives via pulse/direction interfaces. Ethernet TCP/IP with OPC server or
Profibus DP are used for networking with hosts. As a CANopen master, the
controller can coordinate up to 126 drives or slave devices such as I/O
modules. Special feature of TLM 2: NC interpolation of up to four drives,
e.g. for motion in gluing, cutting, axis portals and XY table applications
and all technology applications such as cam disc, cam switch and
Motion Controller SMC
- The SMC motion controller with integrated soft PLC is the
ideal solution for controlling simple motion sequences; for example in
automated production cells and in all applications requiring coordinated
motion. As an autonomous process module, SMC can coordinate up to 32 drives
or control devices such as I/O modules. Special benefit: due to the very
compact design, SMC requires minimum space in the control cabinet.
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
SD3 stepper motor drives
- The SD3 is a universally applicable stepper drive.
Reference values are typically preset and monitored by a higher level PLC or
a motion controller. A very compact and high-performance drive system has
been created in combination with the 3-phase stepper motors by Schneider
Brushless DC drive
- Schneider Electric Motion brushless DC drive systems are
an economical solution for many movement tasks. With compact and powerful
motors and matching drives they offer a wide range of options in device
technology and industrial automation.
ILA with Servomotor
- Integrated Drive ILA has an AC synchronous servomotor.
This motor provides superior dynamic characteristics, because it can be
supplied with a short-term overcurrent during acceleration.
- Superior dynamic characteristics and high peak torque
- High-resolution single-turn encoder with a resolution of 16384 increments
- Optionally with integrated holding brake
- Optionally with planetary gearbox (accessory)
ILE with Brushless DC Motor
- A Integrated Drive ILE is equipped with an brushless DC
motor. The brushless DC motors excel with a high holding torque. Therefore,
a holding brake is usually not required. The ILE electronics offer the
facility of absolute position feedback.
- High holding torque
- Quasi absolute position feedback, therefore homing not required after
switching off and on
- Optionally with spurwheel gearbox or planetary gearbox (accessory)
ILS with Stepper Motor
- The Integrated Drives ILS are fitted with three-phase
stepper motors. These motors provide high torque at low speeds. This drive
is highly suitable for speed drive applications requiring excellent constant
velocity characteristics, but also for high-resolution positioning tasks.
Commissioning of the stepper motor drive is easy because controller setting
is not required.
- High continuous torque
- Excellent constant velocity characteristics
- High positioning resolution (0.018°)
- Optionally with holding brake (ILSxx85 only)
- Optionally with planetary gear (accessory)
- Our AC synchronous servomotors have a very high power
density and enable highly dynamic positioning drives with an excellent
price/performance ratio. 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.
- 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
Schneider Electric Motion 3-phase stepper motors are available in standard
and Ex versions (EEx d IIC T4).
Brushless DC motors
- Schneider Electric Motion‘s BDM motors are brushless DC
motors that are constructed as electronically commutated 3-phase synchronous
motors. The model offers high power delivery and dynamics in a compact
design for the most diverse applications. Depending on the requirements, the
motors feature a distinct or low self-holding torque, so that there often is
no need for a holding brake. The motors can be equipped with various
transmissions such as spur or planetary gears depending on the torque and
service life requirements. Brushless DC motors are equipped with Hall
sensors as standard. For higher positioning resolutions optional encoder
systems can be supplied as an alternative
- Schneider Electric Motion synchronous motors are robust
and work with great precision. The motors can be operated without additional
control electronics with 50 Hz or 60 Hz alternating mains voltage. Our
