Lexium servodrives can be used as smart analog amplifiers, stepper translators, Sercos servodrives, or stand-alone motion controllers. The drives from Schneider Electric, Palatine, Ill., handle inputs from 230 to 480 Vac, feature builtin regenerative resistors, and work with incremental or absolute SSI encoders. When paired with Modicon TSX Premium or Quantum PLC platforms, users can run application-specific software routines for multiaxis packaging operations. A built-in indexer controls single-axis applications, eliminating the need for a separate path finder.
