The AKD2G can be used in a KAS Motion/Machine control system. This application note outlines new/different features to be cognizant of when developing a KAS application that includes  AKD2G drives. After reviewing this document, contact a KAS application engineer if you want more detail.

Not so long ago I bought Programmable Controller, Multi-axis Master (PCMM) and now I'm starting to learn it.

I have a task to simultaneously control two axes in real time. 

How can PCMM help me with this? How should I use it?

I think about EtherCAT multi-axis master and motion controller but I never worked with it. Should i use this?

I do not need stand-alone control. I want to control the axes using a PC.

I have two linear axes: the x-axis and the y-axis. For example, how can I draw a circle?

The touch probe feature of EtherCAT is simply a position capture.  In fact, it uses the position capture feature in the AKD.  When touch probe is set up and enabled, it automatically configures and arms the AKD’s position capture.  There are two touch probes available, corresponding to CAP0 and CAP1 in the AKD.  Each touch probe is configurable to use the positive edge, negative edge, or both.  There is a status word indicating the enable status of each Touch Probe and whether each edge has been triggered.

Any ideas why this doesn't work?  PCMM, AKD on EtherCAT, v3 of KAS IDE.

Help setup the AKD2G in DS402 Profile Velocity mode. 

This document assumes the EtherCAT Master has “free mapping” function available. The ability to select what data is to be shard every update cycle. This information may not make sense to you but (hopefully) it will make sense to the person helping set up your master.

I added the analog and digital I/O to the mapping. That is optional. The position units in my example are 65536 counts/rev. The velocity units in my example are in RPM.

A new KAS project can be built starting from the available templates.

However the user can decide to build an empty project: in this case, it's possible to add the following functions for ETC and Motion Engine initialization.
