Home > Downloads > Automation Libraries

Networking Add-on Instructions

Add-on instructions designed to simplify the integration of the Liberty (previously Lexium) MDrive with popular models of PACs and PLCs. The Liberty (previously Lexium) Mdrive Ethernet TCP/IP plus these Automation Libraries provide an efficient and easy path to implement an interface to the LMD.

Increase your code efficiency and decrease your development time with support for the following functions and more:

  • Relative and absolute moves
  • Jogging
  • Homing
  • Read inputs
  • Write outputs

The libraries provide support for the following PACs and PLCs:

  • Rockwell RSLogix 5000
  • Siemens S7 series
  • Schneider SoMachine and SoMachine Motion
