I am trying to connect AKD drive with a Fanuc robot through Ethernet/IP. My goal is to run a stored motion task from the robot. I really appreciate if you can share any manual or tutorials that I could follow.

Hello Thiagarajan,

We have not tested nor officially support other Ethernet IP masters beyond Micrologix1400 ( explicit only ), Compactlogix, and Contrologix. If Fanuc master supports cyclic I/O Assembly Messaging and you are able to map and establish communications, then this document will likely assist in understanding how to accomplish similar tasks that our AOIs for AB perform.  Again we do not guarantee compatibility except for the AB PLCs listed. If you are using via explicit messaging will be given.

This is a link to the AKD Ethernet IP Cyclic I/O Assembly and Explicit Messaging

The Ethernet/Ip  Landing Page has a lot of articles on setting it up:
