Kollmorgen Launches Dual-Axis AKD2G Servo Drive
November 28, 2018—
The dual-axis AKD2G from Kollmorgen.
Kollmorgen announced the new AKD2G Servo Drive. The dual-axis AKD2G is one of the most power-dense industrial servo drives on the market. It substantially reduces mains wiring, fuses, and filtering to save significant panel space and cost. The AKD2G features expandable I/O (without increasing the size), removable memory, dual-channel STO, and the first drive-resident graphic display in the industry.
Other highlights include: Workbench interface, optimized hybrid connector, and speed – its multicore Compute Engine, Servo on a Chip, is far more powerful than other servo drives. The AKD2G’s current loop update rate of 1.28 µs accommodates changing load conditions immediately. Velocity and position loops updates are also market leading at 62.5 µs and 125 µs.
The AKD2G also offers plug-and-play compatibility to Kollmorgen motors, including the company’s recently released AKM2G. The AKM2G is a configurable, high-performance synchronous servo motor with increased power density and improved torque/speed ratio, allowing OEMs to get up to 30% more performance out of an equivalent size motor or achieve the same performance with a smaller motor. Together, the AKD2G and AKM2G create an unparalleled servo motor system solution.
