Good morning, would you be so kind to help me with the following:
I have an ADK servo drive, I need to get the configuration parameters, for this I need the software and cable to upload them to my PC, make a backup and modify them if necessary.
The next thing is that I need to vary the speed of this motor by means of a PLC, my servo drive does not have an Ethernet port only RS232.
I need to know with which brand of PLC it is friendlier to configure the communication.

Attached photos

Thanks

The drive you chose does not have an "optional" communication card as you purchased the AKD-Bxxxyy-NBAN-0000 drive.

STANDARD, the only way you can use a PLC to vary the speed is by MODBUS TCP/IP communications. A PLC must communicate over standardized MODBUS TCP/IP protocols, and Kollmorgen does not offer PLC's.   A PLC (equipped correctly) can control an AKD by using step and direction inputs from the PLC, as covered in the Installation Manual.
