Copy an axis in KAS IDE?
I have one AKD Ethercat axis configured and working in KAS IDE, but have 4 identical axes. How can I copy/duplicate the working axis in my IDE config?

To duplicate the AKD axis to another identical AKD axis, save the drive parameter settings through Workbench using the "Save to File" button in the Parameter Load/Save screen:
Add another AKD axis in the Ethercat section of the IDE project tree either by Add devices or Scan Device... Options
Compile the Project wit the new axis and download to the PxMM. (This downloads the new Ethercat system configuration to the PxMM controller). Start the project in the online configuration mode.
Open up Workbench for the new drive. Load the parameter file to the new drive using the "Load from File " button in the in the Workbench Parameter Load/Save screen:
