AKD® BASIC Programmable Drives

The AKD® BASIC Series provides all the performance features of our AKD Series, along with built-in machine and motion control that can be programmed in BASIC using Kollmorgen’s integrated development environment. With control functions on the drive itself, there’s no need for a separate PLC—reducing design time, wiring requirements and panel space while enabling more complex processes and higher performance.

  • Standard version:
    • 7 configurable digital inputs (+1 dedicated to enable)
    • 2 configurable digital outputs (+1 fault relay)
    • 1 analog input and 1 analog output
    • Ethernet Service port for commissioning, programming and Modbus TCP/IP
  • Expanded I/O version:
    • 20 digital inputs (1 dedicated to enable)
    • 12 digital outputs (1 dedicated fault relay)
    • 2 analog inputs and 2 analog outputs
    • SD memory card for program and parameter storage
  • Available in the same power and voltage levels as our AKD® Series
  • BASIC programming language, including the ability to use conditional statements
  • Programming interface is a standard feature of AKD WorkBench, and includes ease-of-use features such as automatic syntax highlighting, auto-complete, auto-format and code templates
  • Source code lockout feature with password protection

Benefits

  • With the addition of an on-drive BASIC-programmable drive/controller, the AKD® Series achieves a new milestone for versatility and ease of use
  • AKD BASIC allows single-axis applications to be handled in the same package sizes as the standard AKD drive, without the need for a separate controller
  • The Expanded I/O version integrates additional digital and analog inputs/outputs, eliminating the need for remote I/O and providing even greater capability to serve as a complete machine/motion control package
  • Eliminating the need for a separate PLC substantially reduces design time, wiring requirements, panel space and overall cost
  • BASIC programming language is widely used, easy to learn, and enables quicker programming of more complex motion processes
  • BASIC supports conditional statements, camming, S-curve, limitless motion profiles and other techniques for more advanced motion
  • Menu-driven programming within AKD WorkBench offers intelligent formatting, templates and debugging capabilities to speed development and assist in code documentation
  • Expanded I/O version supports SD memory card for easy program transfer and maintenance, without the need for a PC
  • Source code lockout protects your intellectual property and your machine’s differentiating features
