I want to communicate in PDMM controller via HTTP. Actually I can read from them in C++ but I can't write any value to the variable of PDMM controller in C++. Furthermore I am able to write and read via http with the language of C# by using example codes in KAS IDE software online help , in this there isn't any problem.

The code that I used for reading variables is added with the name of "include.pdf". In this document, I use C++ language, Libcurl library and jsoncpp( as KAS IDE software online help's recommendation).  

The KAS extended template shows the use of different basic functionality, when using the pipe network motion engine. It’s based on the standard two axis pipe network example and includes some of the most common use cases. It covers the following topics

  • PipeNetwork motion blocs (Master, Gear, Comparator, Cam, Phaser, Converter, Axis)
  • Programming languages (SFC, LD, ST)
  • Subprograms (Functions, UDFB)
  • Control Panel
  • Variable structures
  • Defines

The system covered includes a PxMM controller with up to twelve additional AKD drives.

All automation functions are handled in the PLC, the functionality covers the following:

Hello sir,

Is AKD M01206-MCEC  suitable for application in which I want to rotate my motor at my required load torque with constant speed?

What are the Inputs & Outputs of the System?

Para visualizar os alarmes dos drives AKDs na IHM AKI é necessário cadastar todos os alarmes de cada drive no Alarm Server da IHM e inserir código no programa fonte do PLC. Este documento ensina a usar as opção de importação de tabelas e códigos de para facilitar a implementação dos alarmes no projeto de controle.

Importando a lógica de alarmes para o PLC

O arquivo Alarm.xk5 contém o código necessário para a visualização de todos os alarmes para um drive AKD na IHM.


To view the AKDs alarms on the HMI AKI is necessary to register all alarms of each drive in the HMI Alarm Server and insert code in the PLC source program. This document teaches the use of import tables and PLC source program to facilitate the implementation of alarms in the control project.

We have a small demo unit consisting of a  PDMM and an ethercat AKD.  Suddenly the drive is giving a error code of just --.  I cannot scan the drive to the ethercat network and can't connect to it from workbench.  I'm assuming this drive is dead but wanted to make sure.  Do I need to send it back to get fixed or is there something else I can try?

Hi, I have an application moving a loaded sled on rails with a pair of actuators. The actuators are electronically geared and part of an overall system controlled by a PDMM. I'm curious what will happen in the event of a fault to one of the drives. I know if the master faults then the slave will not move since it is following the master. I'm concerned about the case where the slave might fault and am curious if the master will continue moving possible causing damage to the mechanics of the system. If so, is there an easily to implement fix in the PDMM?
