Kollmorgern EtherCAT Servo Drives
The AKD servo drive offers the functionality of a base analog drive, indexing drive, CANopen drive and EtherCAT drive, all in one product. This was developed to give machine builders expanded flexibility to easily transition from one bus type to another within a single drive product, rather than have to work and manage multiple pieces of hardware.
Kollmorgen's Ethernet-based AKD servo drive is feature-rich. Being able to quickly and easily change the AKD's communication protocol between therCAT and CANopen gives machine builders a clear competitive advantage in getting
new, better and differentiated machines to market, faster.
AKD servo drives are also uniquely capable of supporting a variety of feedback devices and Ethernet motion buses from the base hardware, without the need for any separate option cards. Currently supported feedback devices include Smart Feedback Devices (SFD), Endat, BiSS, Analog Sine/Cos encoders, incremental encoders, HIPERFACE® and resolvers. In addition to EtherCAT and CANopen motion buses, the AKD supports SynqNet®, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP andModbus/TCP.
