Until recently, purchasing drives, motors, and cables from different suppliers was routine. The technology simplified the process of choosing the cables, and any installation technician was capable of choosing cables that met a specific application’s needs and installing them without causing any critical issues in the system.

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?
