Lexium motion module

Marlborough, Connecticut – The Lexium Motion Module (LMM) is a compact, programmable motion controller from the manufacturer of MDrive integrated motors for motion applications measured in millimeters rather than inches.
LMMs are programmed via MCode, also used in MDrive products. This shared platform can fast track your motion concept to market: speeding proof-of-concept, reducing risk and expediting the development process. All-in-one MDrive products can rapidly validate motion with a turning motor shaft. MCode programs are transferrable to LMM and longer-lead PCBs but require less development than chipsets.
Motion system design can also be accelerated using the manufacturer’s 1-axis or 4-axis development boards. Boards include isolated I/O, locking pluggable connectors and serial RS-422/485 programmable motion or CANopen. A serial communication cable with mating DB9 connector is available for plug-n-play USB interface.
Motors, accessories and starter kits are available to support LMM applications. Motors in NEMA sizes 8 (20mm), 11 (28mm), 14 (36mm), and 17 (42mm), pair well with 1.5A LMM units. Additional motor sizes and styles, LMM power levels and communication platforms are available.
