AKD Modbus TCP Landing Page

Note: This Landing Page primarily applies to the AKD-B, P, or T drives. There are other application notes and guides for KAS with PCMM and PDMM controllers on the Kollmorgen Developer Network. See those articles for details that apply to that platform.

Overview and Specifications

Overview

The Modbus protocol is a communications protocol that is based on a client-server architecture. It was created in 1979. In the industry, the Modbus has developed into a de facto standard since it is an open protocol.

Modbus allows connecting a server and several clients, usually via Ethernet. Three different operating modes are differentiated for data transmission: Modbus ASCII, RTU and TCP.

Each bus participant must have a unique address. In this case, the address 0 is reserved for a broadcast. Each participant may send messages via the bus.

Kollmorgen AKD Drive offers the TCP mode Modbus. TCP/IP packets are used to transmit the data. The TCP port 502 is reserved for Modbus TCP.

Note: The AKD-P-NxPN ( Profinet ) drive is the only AKD model in the family that does not support Modbus TCP communications.
