AKD EtherCAT Scaling for Velocity, Acceleration, and Deceleration >

This article discusses AKD EtherCAT scaling for velocity, acceleration, and deceleration commands and actual velocity.  For the position modes, FBUS.PARAM05 applies to position scaling and the scaling for velocity, acceleration, and deceleration. PP…

AKD EtherCAT Flexible PDO Mapping Size Limitations and Padding >

The AKD drive supports flexible EtherCAT PDO mapping.  The 4 available flexible RxPDO’s (PDO data for receive direction, commands from master to drive) are mapped using objects 1600h, 1601h, 1602h, and 1603h.  Each one of these RxPDOs is limited to a…

Migration from AKD EtherCAT IP mode to AKD2G CSP mode >

When migrating from AKD EtherCAT IP mode (Interpolated Position) to AKD2G EtherCAT CSP mode (Cyclic Synchronous Position), the only thing that needs to be changed is the target position object (change from 60C1h sub1 to 607Ah). IP mode is supposed…

AKD Command Source for EtherCAT/CANopen >

The AKD command source (DRV.CMDSOURCE) is set automatically by the EtherCAT/CANopen master controller.  There is no need to set this in Workbench when using the fieldbus.  And there is no need to read DRV.CMDSOURCE to verify that it's set correctly…

Workbench loses connection when EtherCAT master is connected to the AKD using EoE >

EoE Overview EoE = Ethernet over EtherCAT This allows communication between Workbench (installed on the EtherCAT master PC) and the AKD using Telnet communication over the EtherCAT network.  It allows connecting to the drive with Workbench without…
