AKD Profinet Sample Projects  This page includes a description of the Siemens S7 Profinet sample projects, the sample project files (TIA Archive files), and other related TIA project files. There is also a manual specifically for the sample project.

Automation of the AKD Drive with a Siemens S7-1200 and S7-1500 PLC and Profinet RT  is an article showing some description of the function blocks (previous versions), and explains some common programming solutions.

Old Sample Project for AKD Profinet drive with Siemens S7-300 series PLC and STEP 7 software  This is an older STEP 7 project for the S7-300 and AKD.  It is written in structured text.

Also related to projects for the Siemens S7-1200 and S7-1500 is a project using Modbus TCP to communicate with an AKD drive (Does NOT work with the Profinet drive, AKD-Pxxxyy-NxPN-0000).  The AKD Profinet drive does NOT support Modbus!  This is provided as an alternative communication protocol supported by Siemens PLC's.


Training Material:
