The KAS IDE (Integrated Development Environment)  contains standard templates to help you get started with the development of application projects. The templates are available when you create a new project. 

This page contains additional templates. They are .KAS project files that can be downloaded and opened inside the IDE as a starting point for a project:.

AKT2G-SM-L50-000 and AKT2G-SM-L15-000 EtherCAT stepper drives allow you to control Stepper motors up to 5 Amp (6.5 with fan cartridge AKT2G-AC-FAN-001) with a PDMM or PCMM controller. The same function blocks used with servo motors are used in the KAS IDE development software, making it seamless to switch an axis from a servo to a stepper drive. Both slices have optional encoder inputs. Stepper motors are run open loop regardless, but can verify position commanded with an encoder.

The HMI displays the Windows Embedded version in the lower-left corner of the screen at boot time.

For reference, the AKI and AKI2G models are as follows:
