Hello,

I am owner more S300 drivers and all of them are Kollmorgen brand but one second hand guy from them is driver from Danaher. Everything is same as Kollmorgen guys are but this one stared be problematic after I want to connect via newer driveGUI. 

I have some old driveGUIs where is no problem at all, but there are not some functions and for me very important autotunning function, which I really need for my position application. There it is starting be really interesting. 

I took RS232 setup from old driveGUI and put them to newer version with autotunning tool. I connected them together but it did not communicate, but with older version driveGUI communicate well. When I replace drive to Kollmorgen brand one and tried to communicate, everything worked well.

I do not know where could be problem. Danaher brand has own driveGUI? But at ID plate was Kollmorgen address for support.

Do you have any experiences with something similar please? 

Can you help me with solution?

Many thanks,

Sincerely Ladislav

Hello Tod,

Many thanks for your assist. It started to be clear when you said, if I use pure RS232 or some RS232<>USB translator. Yes I used RS232<>USB and here it was bug. 

I started to use pure RS232 at my old 32bit processor board, with some other old interfaces, and everything run smoothly at first connection. I do not know about this problems with protocol to nowdays. 

I update the firmware to the newest with which my hardware configuration runs.

Autotunning done, accuracy problems were suppressed.

No problem at all, thanks!

Sincerely Ladislav

We need more information to assist.

Can you provide:

  • Kollmorgen and Danaher drive hardware model, hardware revision ( see nameplate sticker on drive ).
  • Kollmorgen and Danaher drive firmware version
  • Drive GUI version(s) you're trying to use and with which drive model
  • Windows Operating System
  • Are you using a USB to Serial adapter or a true RS232 Port?
