KOCO MOTION presented under the name "Lexium MDrives"the third generation of the MDrive Series Schneider Electric, formerly IMS. The new integrated stepper motor drives are available in the three sizes Nema 17, 23 and 34 with possible torques from 0,2 to 6,4 Nm. The Lexium series builds on the functionality of the previous MDrive drives, but also offers some future-oriented features:
As a new development, interfaces for Ethernet-based fieldbus systems were integrated into the Lexium MDrive drives. The connection of the supply voltage is equipped with protection circuits for unrestricted hot plug (changeability of system components and modules during operation of the supply voltage). The serial interfaces and inputs / outputs were galvanically isolated, which makes them very electrically robust. The Hybrid Stepper Motor Drives now feature standard and at no extra cost the patented integrated closed-loop control HMT (Hybrid Motion Technology) for readjustment and prevention of step loss. The connection plugs are robust and lockable. Last but not least, there is now an extended factory warranty of four years for the very good price / performance ratio.
