How to Change IP Address in AKD-C and AKD-N | 11 Mar 2022 | |

How to Change IP Address in AKD-C and AKD-N

Changed IP address in AKD-C and AKD-N and now in the Topology window of WorkBench I see the AKD-N drive, but I cannot establishes communicate with it.

1. How can they recover communications with the AKD-N drive?
2. What is the proper steps to change the IP addresses in the AKD-C and AKD-N drives?

First change the IP addresses in the AKD-N drives and then change it in the AKD-C power supply. Then cycle the 24 volts logic power to the system and let it reboot.

With the following you can check or reset the IP addresses / modes for the individual strings:

STRING1.DRIVESIPADDRESS
STRINGS.IPMODERESET


STRINGx.DRIVESIPADDRESS:
Description
STRINGx.DRIVESIPADDRESS displays the IP addresses of all devices connected on string x. When used without an index number it will return a list containing the IP addresses of all devices on the string.
When used with an index number it will display the IP address of a specific device instead, e.g. STRING1.DRIVESIPADDRESS 3 //displays the IP address of the 3rd device on the first string.

STRINGS.IPMODERESET:
Description
If the AKD-N’s connected to the AKD-C are set to an invalid static ip address, the command STRINGS.IPMODERESET on the AKD-C can be used to reset the IP mode of all AKD-Ns. After execution of this command, the AKD-N retrieve a new IP address either through DHCP or Auto IP. This command will only effect AKD-N’s with FW version greater or equal to M_01-14-00-003.


STRING1.DRIVESEOEIPADDRESS to STRING2.DRIVESEOEIPADDRESS:
Description
STRINGx.DRIVESEOEIPADDRESS displays the IP address of the Ethernet over EtherCAT interface of all devices connected on string x.
When used without a parameter, it will return a list containing the IP address of all devices on the string. When used with a parameter, it will display the IP address of a specific device instead, e.g. “STRING1.DRIVESEOEIPADDRESS 3” will display the IP address of the third device on the first string.
