How to Release AKD Brake via Profinet | 15 May 2017 | |

How to Release AKD Brake via Profinet



i got a AKD-P00607-NBPN-D000 with a Profinet Interface.

For our Application i need to manually release the Brake to move the Axis by hand.

Via the Kollmorgen Workbench i can configure a digital Input to release the Brake.

Is this also possible via Profinet or do i need to use the Input?

Use the parameter MOTOR.BRAKERLS.  It works over Profinet.  The PNU number is 2242 and data size is Byte.  Set the value to 0 for the drive to control the brake.  Set it to 1 to release (disengage) the brake.  Set it to 2 to apply (engage) the brake.

Thank you, i try this.

Is there any Documentation about the PNU's?

In the Manual "Kollmorgen AKD ProfiNet Communications Manual EN Rev L.pdf" is only the PNU Number but not which Values do what.

All PNUs related to PROFIDrive protocol are described more in detail in the manual. All PNUs related to an AKD parameter are listed in manual only and are described in detail in the Workbench online help (AKD Parameter and Command Reference Guide).

please refer to parameter "MOTOR.BRAKERLS" in Workbench online help. This command allows a user to release or apply the motor brake.
You should pay attention that the command overwrite the drive control, if the value is > 0. Means, you need to set it back to 0, if the drive should control the brake.
