Welcome to Kollmorgen's Blog in Motion.  We have been adding information and knowledge to the great web based world for many years - through white papers, technical documents, and even webinars.  Kollmorgen enjoys sharing our knowledge with you, as well as identifying other motion related tidbits through our Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and YouTube feeds.  Our newest source is Blog in Motion, covering a wide range of topics, as well as some interesting contributing authors with lots of Motion experience.  If Motion Matters to you, stop by, follow, like, and sign up so you can stay tuned for what Kollmorgen has in store for you!

Until the start of the new millennium, it was customary practice to purchase drives, motors, and cables from different suppliers. Nowadays, connection cables are no longer considered to be an accessory but a product in their own right that requires a level of competency similar to that of any other product. Only the company that designed the motors and drives is in a position to make the appropriate choices to offer its customers a high quality and flexible connection that can be tailored to their application requirements.

Robots and automated machines and vehicles form an integral part of our everyday lives and are not just found in the industrial sector: precise control of motion is indispensable. The combination of the two areas of technology – motion (servo drives) and movement (AGVs) – allows KOLLMORGEN to play a leading role in “Motion in Movement – 4.0 Ready” solutions, and to offer its own customers complete and integrated systems, ready for Industry 4.0.

Most of the AKD drive’s parameters have a 32bit data size, but some parameters have a 64bit data size.  Modbus communication on the AKD drive uses registers of a 16bit data size.  So for a 64bit parameter, it takes four registers to send the data over Modbus.  There are many devices, including PLC’s, HMI’s, and PC programs that do not handle a 64bit data size.  So what can be done to read and write 64bit values when working with Modbus and a device that only supports 32bit values?
