Watch a video which shows how to add multiple languages inside one project in the Kollmorgen Visualization Builder (KVB) software. Using a built-in action, the user can change all the strings in an HMI project at once from one language to another. This is helpful as only a single project has to be maintained, no matter where in the world it might be shipped.'s picture

This is part 2 of a two part series. This application note will demonstrate establishing Modbus TCP communications between a Kollmorgen Visualization Builder ( AKI ) project and the variables in a running program in the AKD BASIC drive. Reading and Writing are demonstrated much in the same fashion as Part 1 but using KVB instead of Modbus Poll.

This application note serves as a quick start with simple example using a Modbus Master simulator software called Modbus Poll to read/write over Modbus TCP to/from the AKD BASIC program ( variables ). This is part 1 of a two part series. Part 2 will demonstrate similar methods but using the Kollmorgen Visualization Builder software for our AKI operator panel product line.
