Replacement for a servo drive Lexium 05 Schneider

Replacement for a servo drive Lexium 05 Schneider

Replacement for a servo drive Lexium 05 Schneider

I was requested to replace a servo drive Lexium 05(LXM05AD10M2) that is currently malfunctioning and because it´s discontinued, my boss wants a new servo drive to work with the same servo motor, an AC Servo motor(BSHBSH0553P11A2A).
Could anyone tell me if you know some compatible and non-discontinued servo drive for that servo motor mentioned?

Thanks for your attention.

RE: Replacement for a servo drive Lexium 05 Schneider

Sorry, but no one will be able to do that for you without them being a salesman or an engineer you pay to help you.

To do that it would require a lot of work.

You have to read a lot of the manual of your existing failed unit so you understand the details of its operation and command structure. How it's currently programmed and setup. Then you have to cast about the industry space looking for possible replacement candidates. Once a candidate is found you have to find out if it's available in the current Covid space. If it is then you have to read and understand how the candidate works and see if it can be substituted because it has the same modes and functionality available as the failed unit. Often a potential substitute will have all but one or two aspects that ultimately remove it from candidacy causing you to have to go back and start all over again looking for a second, third, or possibly 4th candidate before finding something workable. All that is contingent on understanding how the machine converses with the failed unit.

Sometimes it can be much easier if for-instance the communications are rudimentary like only a direction signal and step pulse. Then about any substitute could work. You would still have to understand how to tune the replacement to work acceptably.
