How to set phase shift resp. shift angle in AKD-..306?

I'm using 2 AKD drives in "Leader (Master)-Follower (Slave)" mode. The drive models are AKD-P00306. Idea: I have connected them through X9-X9 (EEO). The first AKD drive receives the primary signal from the encoder and sends it to the second AKD drive with an offset of 90°. The question: now I would like to set up the 90° shift angle for the signal for the second drive ("Follower"). How can i do that? 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Alex

you can do it with a digital input if it's a fix offset. Set the Digital Input to Mode 17. You will find the example in the Kollmorgen Worbkench Help under "Configuring General Drive Settings --> Digital Inputs and Outputs"



Hi Martin. Thank you. Are there some other possibilities? This method is not optimal for me, because I'm using as "Opmode : Torque" and as "Command source : Analog" and I would like to use the analog input to send a current signal to AKD.

Hi Alex
For electronic Gearing the slave the command source have to be set to 2- Electronic Gearing and the opmode to 2-Position Mode.
If your master is in torque mode and the slave in position mode, the servo performance and behavior of the master and slave will be different, because of the different modes of operation and control loops.
I don't see any other possibility to set the offset of the second drive then set doing it over the digital input of the slave drive. Of course if you are connected over Telnet or Modbus TCP amd you define the input by Mode 17 and set the DINx.PARAM with the offset. You can now change the DINx.PARAM to the value you like over Telnet or Modbus.

Thanks a lot!
