The AKD2G's various feedback options allow for incorporating up to 5 feedback devices into the drive. Occasionally the feedback is not used for servo AXIS control (a position used as a direct command or feedback to a servo axis) but used as an additional or axillary feedback signal for the motion/machine controller (PCMM, etc). The controller utilizes the position as a master or reference position. The attached application note covers the setup and scaling of this position that is sent through EtherCAT.

AKD2G Dual Axis drives have the ability to use the new Gantry Command Source. When the Command Source is changed to 4 - Gantry, Axis2 will follow all commands sent to Axis1 (enable/disable and motion commands). This is meant to be used when there are gantry mechanics and both Axis1 and Axis2 are physically connected and sharing a load. By giving them the same motion commands at the same time ensures that they will not fight each other while connected and prevent binding of the mechanics.
