New lower prices have been announced for all IP65-rated Lexium MDrive products, making these intelligent all-in-one motors sealed against water and dust an even smarter choice.
Robust Lexium MDrive products with IP65 rating are available in NEMA 17, 23 & 34 size motors with M12 circular connectors. These products are available for networks operating over CANopen as well as EthernetTCP/IP which includes ODVA-compliant EtherNet/IP, Profinet, ModbusTCP and MCode/TCP. Two RS-422/485 versions are also available. One is a fully programmable motion control version. Another is a pulse/direction version which includes variable speed control, constant velocity mode, and torque mode.

“Responding to market demand for robust, high performance integrated motors, rollout of IP65-rated Lexium MDrive products began earlier this year. With the complete product offer now available, we are pleased to announce price cuts of 9% for these USA-assembled products,” said Paul Kling, VP Sales, SEM USA. “This price decrease reduces the gap between IP65 and non-IP65 Lexium MDrive products, making the addition of environmental protection more affordable for all applications.” More after the jump.
IP65 Lexium MDrive products integrate high-torque step motor, controller, I/O, drive electronics, encoder and closed-loop performance in compact packages featuring M12 connectors. Ideal for a wide range of motion applications, MDrive products are applied in industries from medical, laboratory and pharmaceutical to assembly, robotics and packaging.
