The following chart demonstrates the differences in byte allocation for the command and response assemblies for the AKD1G and AKD2G EtherNet/IP drives.

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 to use a buffer to store many subindexes of 60C1h. Sub1, sub2, sub3...  All of the data points of a motion profile can be set to the drive (to the buffer) at the beginning of the move.  Then the buffer executes each position data point at the appropriate time with interpolation, much like running a motion task.
