New Kollmorgen AKD Ethernet-compatible servo drives are available from Heason Technology. With common interfacing and hardware from 1.1-64kW continuous output powers, and featuring multiple Ethernet connectivity plus a wide choice of fieldbus options, these servo drives suit motion control applications ranging from single-axis indexing through to fully synchronised multi-axis position control.
AKD servo drives are available in five modular sizes for panel-mounting with peak current ratings from 9-48A on 120/240V AC single-phase or 240/480V AC three-phase supplies. Higher current versions up to 192A are due for release during 2010.
Configuration, diagnostics and programming are all said to be straightforward thanks to a PC-based GUI featuring intuitive icons and screen flow navigation, with both auto-tuning and guided manual tuning. Online troubleshooting and verification is available for faster installation; setting-up is further simplified with plug-and-play compatibility across Kollmorgen's comprehensive range of rotary, cartridge rotary and linear servo motors.
Communications and control
The DSP based AKD servo drive features a high-bandwidth torque loop update rate of just 0.67 microseconds and velocity/position loop updates down to 62.5 microseconds. Such impressive control is combined with fast data acquisition through its PC-compatible TCP/IP Ethernet service channel for real-time performance feedback. The flexibility built into the range also includes EnDat, BiSS and Hiperface feedback device support; multiple fieldbus expansion options including EtherCAT, SynqNet, Modbus/TCP and CANopen.
A full and expandable complement of optically-isolated I/O helps to speed installation. Option cards are available for expanded non-volatile system memory and processing power.
The AKD range can also be embedded with the innovative new KMS (Kollmorgen Automation Suite) software to realise even higher performing single- and multi-axis system performance with full IEC 61131-3 PLC control for tightly integrated motion and machine control applications.
