The MDrive integrated motor by Schneider Electric Motion USA is designed for Ethernet/IP systems enables the networking of products from different manufacturers without the need for special interface adaptation. Courtesy: Schneider Electric Motion USAMDrive integrated motor products by Schneider Electric Motion USA are now available for EtherNet/IP systems, delivering advantages to a wide range of industrial motion applications in a compact, low cost package that is tested for ODVA conformance and can interface with many manufacturer systems including Rockwell and Omron.

MDrive EtherNet/IP motion systems feature integrated motor, drive and programmable I/O with standardized IP addressing, eliminating complicated wiring and programming of traditional multi-drop systems with RS-485 communications. Standard RJ45 connectors and CAT5/6 cabling simplify connectivity.

MDrive EtherNet/IP products have a configuration port provided for setting the IP address. Windows-based TCP/IP Configuration Utility sets parameters and assembly object mapping. Adherence to established protocol standards enables the networking of products from different manufacturers, without the need for special interface adaptation. As an adapter class device, MDrive EtherNet/IP products are capable of explicit or implicit messaging.

An additional system feature is Hybrid Motion Technology, a hardware-based system delivering the benefits of servo and stepper motors, with unique capabilities and enhancements over both. This technology’s real-time response delivers smooth movement while eliminating unintentional stalling, saves energy and lowers heat with Variable Current Setting, enables operation at 100% of motor torque, and can operate in Torque Mode, which is unique for stepper motors.
