• Most of the AKD drive's parameters have a 32-bit data size, but some parameters have a 64-bit data size.

  • Most of us have been there at one point or another…..wishing we had a backup copy of something. Whether it’s contacts on a cell phone or a program file in a motion controller, data is important and valuable.

  • Unlike fieldbus communications only being supported by particular models of the AKD servo drive, Modbus TCP communication is supported by all of the AKD models.  Whether you have a simple "analog" drive, an indexing drive, or an AKD with BASIC programming, you have the capability of using Modbus communication.  It is a simple, easy to use, standard communication protocol that can be used in a PC, PLC, or HMI to talk to any AKD drive.

  • Setting up an Ethernet network can be frustrating if you don't understand the basics.  A network is just the communication connection between two or more devices.  These devices can be computers, PLC's, servo drives, HMI's, sensors, cameras…anything that supports Ethernet communication.
