IMS Schneider Electric Motion's MDrive 23 Linear Actuator  /  ML23

MDriveA(R) linear systems integrate a stepping motorbased linear actuator with driver, controller and optional encoder to form asingle compact, powerful and easy to use linear motion product that delivers highaccuracy and unsurpassed repeatability. Two linear actuator styles areavailable: external shaft and non-captive shaft, with a load limit of up to 200lb. Precision rolled lead screws are corrosion resistant stainless steel withTeflon coating option. MDrive Linear Actuators can reduce linear motion machinecost, size and time-to-market while delivering high performance andreliability. MDriveA(R) Linear Actuator advantages to design engineers include: reduced workload - anintegrated linear motion solution eliminates an Engineer's task of researchingand specifying individual components; compact design - Integrated motor,mechanicals and electronics form a single compact unit that dramaticallyreduces the space requirements in linear motion applications; versatility - fora wide range of linear motion applications, several MDrive Linear Actuatorversions and styles provide a rich choice of features at low cost; as well as simplifiedinstallation/setup - minimized wiring and production time along withuser-friendly software contribute to easy integration of MDrive Linear Actuatorproducts. The MDrive Linear Acuators also offer the availability of a rugged internal encoderintegrated with the screw; integrationof actuator, motor, drive, encoder and programmable motion controller completewith I/O; and AccuStepTM motion control technology that eliminates loss ofsynchronization - the motor cannot stall; maintains constant motor torque with torquemode, giving MDrive Linear Actuators the ability to apply a regulatedforce; and reduced motor heating and power consumption with Variable OperatingCurrent, where the unit only draws the current required to complete a move.
