AKD torque monitoring
I have this drive AKD-P04807-NBEI-0000 connected to Contrologix PLC and am using Studio 5000 ver 24 software. I wanted to monitor the running torque of the motor. Anyone knows how and what parameter do I need to extract to give me the actual value?
Thank you in advance,

The AKD drives do not provide a direct motor torque parameter. The user has to calculate the motor torque by using the motor's current feedback "IL.FB" ( units are Arms) and the motor 's "Kt" torque constant (units are N-m/Arms). The formula to use for this calculation is “Motor Torque (N-m)” = IL.FB * Kt . The "Kt" torque constant of our motors' have +/- 10 percent tolerance.
These articles demonstrates how to monitor IL.CMD and IL.FB over Ethernet IP :
