WorkBench (version ≥ 2.2.2.4811) has some accessible parameters to tweak the way data are exchanged with the drive. Keywords sent to the drive and answers returned will be grouped together to build bigger packets of data. This is particularly helpful on networks with high latency. It is also useful for slowing down the polling interval to avoid overloading the communication channel on slower networks.

These parameters are accessible in the WorkBench configuration file, which is usually placed in the install directory:

Implementation of STO Inputs

There are two types of STO input in common use today:

  1. DC-DC Type: isolated STO input based on using a DC-DC converter to power the date driver circuitry. 
  2. O-C Type: opto-isolated input of a drive that acts upon the gate driver circuit.

Here is a simplified drawing of an O-C Type input:

Hello there!

How can i configure echo on the AKD servoamlifier?
On s300/s700 the PROMPT parameter helps me with it, but i can't find same parameter on AKD.
Can you help me with it, please?

This patameter important for me, because i track answer to sent command using echo.
Now AKD is giving only the prompt (-->) symbol for inputting data.
I can’t track which of the sent commands the answer is coming at the moment.

How do you track which of the sent commands the answer is coming at the moment?

Thank you!

I'm using a AKD-M01206 with a direct drive motor. In my KAS-IDE project, I was using X9 as an input to monitor another encoder in the system, but now I want to use it as an output so another system can monitor the motor the AKD is driving. 

Hi I would like to ask a question, I have a DAQ (Data acquisition ) and an AKD Komorgen. I am writing a Python script. The Python script is for communication and data exchange between AKD and DAQ. The DAQ records the actual speed of the AKD. I connected the analog output (X8 ) of AKD to the analog input (AIN0) of the DAQ. How can I now send the actual speed from AKD to DAQ ? If this is simply done with the command AOUT.MODE 1 then everything will be done automatically or what else should I program ?
