Lexium MDrive® (LMD) CANopen NEMA 17 (42 mm) with eCylinder integrates a 1.8° 2-phase stepper motor, drive electronics, and inline mounted captive electric cylinder. Linear motion is produced by an ACME screw/nut system coupled directly to the driving shaft. These compact products offer many distinct benefits including competitive price, high accuracy and repeatability. A cleaner, quieter alternative to pneumatics for some applications. Feedback options include: Open loop stepper, closed loop with hmTechnology (hMT) or multi-turn absolute encoder.
