Commutation is the means by which a servo drive controls the torque of a motor by determining the position of the motor and applying current to the appropriate motor phases.  If the rotor position of the motor is not determined correctly or the motor power phase wires are wired to the wrong terminals, the drive will apply current to the wrong phase at the wrong time (or at the wrong rotor position).  This will cause the motor to run away or lock up.

So here's my story. Boss decided I'm going to start programming our custom built machines. He said," Theres a computer over there, go use it." 

We use TRIO with Motion Perfect v4, Proface HMIs with GP-PRO EX, Kollmorgen drives and servos (at least sometimes). So I've got everything wired up and the drive (AKD-P) is giving me fault F401 no matter what I do. Our servo is a Kollmorgen AKM 52L. The drive and servo are connected via a Kollmorgen Hybrid Cable AKD.

Hi, Kollmorgen team

I'm planning to use AKD and Zettlex Biss-C feedback sensor together.

WorkBench shows  Biss-C renishaw on the feedback selection screen. Is it compatible only with Renishaw's BISS-C sensor?

I am wondering if it is compatible with the Biss-C sensor manufactured by Zettlex.

Please check the compatibility of the protocol, I attached protocol manual of Zettlex.

Thanks.

BiSS-C is a digital encoder protocol that permits a wide range of possible formats. The AKD supports the most common BiSS-C format, and can only guarantee support for the encoders listed in "Documented BiSS-C Encoders". To determine if a BiSS-C device not listed here is supported by the AKD, follow the steps in "Setting Up an Undocumented BiSS-C Encoder"

Documented BiSS-C Encoders

The following BiSS-C encoders are known to work with an AKD. This list does not include BiSS-B encoders, which function differently.

Valid for S300, S700 (S400 & S600 minimal changes in display)

In October 2016, an inter-compatibility test was performed together with the company Heidenhain. In this event, the AKD was tested successfully with various types of Heidenhain Endat 2.2 encoders.

The devices tested can be found in this article.

This article outlines setting up a digitizing axis (secondary external encoder) or encoder master in a PxMM controller application that is using the PLCopen motion engine. The encoder input port is: AKD connector X9.

Acceptable formats for the master signal are:
