AKD-1206 vs PCnetwork card / TwinCAT - synchronization/command issue (spikes)
We have been facing an issue where the command signals are interrupted/spiked (randomly, though more-or-less deterministic).
Control: natural PC network card
SW: TwinCAT via EtherCAT interface
We tested with different synhron params, but the failure is stable.
We replaced networkCard to a temporary (external) NI-PXI real-time controller:
failure also appears, although with change any timing params we could eliminate the problem,
but PXI not the originally planned tool for application.
Anybody has similar phenomenom recently?
I am pretty sure that a network card should control the drive via Twincat properly.
//might be an option to consultate with an expert from Kollmorgen???
