The following fault, error, and alarm are each indicative of possible cable or connection problems.

  • F125 on the AKD, "Fieldbus Sync frames lost."
  • E30 in KAS, "EtherCAT communication failure during operational mode."
  • A38 in KAS, "EtherCAT missed a receive frame during operational mode."

The command ECAT.DIAG can be executed in the workbench terminal to help identify the location of the problem after it occurs.

The following is an example of the output from this command.

Modbus TCP is a communication protocol that is available on all models of the AKD drive ( except the AKD-P-NAPN or AKD-P-NBPN ( Profinet ).  The communication is supported on Ethernet physical hardware, the X11 Ethernet port on the top of the drive.

Normally, the Workbench software is used to connect to and configure the AKD drives.  However, there may be some instances where Workbench can't be used or where another communication method is preferred for troubleshooting purposes, etc.  Two terminal programs that can be used to communicate with the AKD are Hyperterminal and PuTTY.  Both of these support TCP/IP communication and can be used in the same way as the Terminal screen in Workbench.

AKD

The AKD Drives are connected to the PC or to a Hub or Switch via a standard Cat. 5 Ethernet cable.
