The recently released Lexium Motion Module (LMM) from Schneider Electric, an ultra-compact programmable motion controller, expands its performance range with the release of a new CANopen version.
The product's full featured CANopen interface supports CiA DS301: CANopen Application Layer/Communication Profile and DSP402: Device Profile for Drives/Motion Control. For CANopen motion systems with tight space constraints, the LMM's extremely compact size of 2.7×1.4×0.16" (68x35x4mm) is a good solution.
To expedite development with the CANopen LMM, a 1-axis Development Board is available. It includes isolated I/O, CAN communications transceivers and locking pluggable connectors. The Development Board is available alone or as part of a complete Starter Kit.
The Starter Kit includes a CANopen LMM, 1-axis Development Board, NEMA 17 frame motor with encoder, USB-to-CAN communications converter, and power supply.
Complementing the 1.5 Amp LMM, a selection of motors are available. Standard options include rotary stepper motors in NEMA sizes 8 (20mm), 11 (28mm), 14 (36mm) and 17 (42mm). Custom motor sizes and styles are also available, as are LMM with alternate power levels and communication platforms.
