The range of Lexium SD3 stepper drives that are compatible with BRS stepper motors constitutes a compact and dynamic combination for machines across a wide power and power supply voltage range:
Lexium SD3 28 stepper drive:
BRS stepper motor:
The Lexium SD3 range is enhanced by GBX planetary reducers. Easy to mount, lubricated for life and available in ten reduction ratios: 3:1 to 25:1.
Economical, GBX reducers are designed for applications, which do not require a very limited play.
A complete equipment
Lexium SD3 integrates functions and components usually found externally, which are used to keep its compact design, making it easier to integrate the drive into control enclosures or machines.
The Lexium SD3 stepper drive by Schneider Electric is incorporated in the safety system of installations. It integrates the "Safe torque off" safety function, which prevents accidental starting of the motor.
This function is compliant with machine standard EN 954-1 category 3, standard IEC/EN 61508 SIL 2 for electrical installations and standard IEC/EN 61800-5-2 for power drives.
Lexium SD3 can control BRS motors in accordance with a large number of control modes:
Manual operation for easy setup.
Lexium SD3 stepper drives also provide traditional commissioning functions (homing, reference setting, etc.).
Control and interfaces
Lexium SD3 has three control interfaces as standard:
The Lexium control tool software is used to configure, set and debug the Lexium SD3 axis.
