AKT2G-SM-L50-000 and AKT2G-SM-L15-000 EtherCAT stepper drives allow you to control Stepper motors up to 5 Amp (6.5 with fan cartridge AKT2G-AC-FAN-001) with a PDMM or PCMM controller. The same function blocks used with servo motors are used in the KAS IDE development software, making it seamless to switch an axis from a servo to a stepper drive. Both slices have optional encoder inputs. Stepper motors are run open loop regardless, but can verify position commanded with an encoder.
