No, the Berger Lahr WDP5-118 is a 5 phase stepping motor drive with the ability to store pre-assigned programmable movement commands.
There is no product offered that direct replaces this drive due to the 5 phase stepping motor used with the WDP5-118 drive.

The best suitable solution for upgrading from the WDP5-118 is the Schneider Electric Lexium 32M

Below is a list of part numbers for nearly all the components needed to upgrade from WDP5-118 to Lexium32 including the motor.
