Kollmorgen Servo Drive Broadens Range of Power and Fieldbus Options
In addition to high-servo-performance motors, drives, gearing and actuation, Kollmorgen is known for broad connectivity and ease-of-use.
Kollmorgen new 32 kW drive consumes only 576 cm2 of panel space; the smallest drive in the AKD family, at 1 kW, consumes only 99 cm2. The AKD platform performs with a 0.67 µs current loop: Approximately 100x the industry-standard speeds of 62.5 µs.
In addition to high-servo-performance motors, drives, gearing and actuation, Kollmorgen is known for broad connectivity and ease-of-use: The AKD platform supports Ethernet /IP, Profinet, EtherCAT, Modbus TCP, CANopen, SERCOS III, SynQnet, and TCP/IP. Recent enhancements to HTTP and UDP support in the intelligent “PDMM” version of AKD—Kollmorgen’s drive-resident multi-axis motion controller—satisfies growing demand to interface with PC networks for back office analytics and PC-based SCADA control.
“Whether you specify a complete Kollmorgen system or use one of our elements in an existing architecture, more options means less compromise.” said Scott Evans, director of product planning at Kollmorgen. “Partnering with Kollmorgen enables machine builders to maximize performance while reducing implementation time.”
