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. 

Kollmorgen Visualization Builder (KVB) software has built in alarm features. Users can easily determine when certain values of tags will raise alarms, how they are displayed on the HMI, how they can be cleared, how users can view a history of past alarms, and if text messages or emails should be sent along with certain alarms. The video embedded below goes through the basics of setting alarms and options for how they are viewed on Kollmorgen AKI HMI panels.

Watch a video which shows how to add multiple languages inside one project in the Kollmorgen Visualization Builder (KVB) software. Using a built-in action, the user can change all the strings in an HMI project at once from one language to another. This is helpful as only a single project has to be maintained, no matter where in the world it might be shipped.

Dear Expert,

Currently we have lot of MMC -A4 Plus (standalone) connected to HMI (Schneider) using Ethernet. Somehow the MMC Ethernet module is fail (this is the 3rd times in last 4 month). Sadly we no Ethernet module left in the warehouse. 

We have user port in MMC not in use, this can be used as serial communication to our HMI. In HMI I can configure the serial communication, but in MMC side I have no clue. I have very limited experiance with PicPro and also limited document to get learn.

Please advice

regards

Controlling AKD drives with HMI through Modbus TCP is easy but different panels need different adjustments.This article will help you in commissioning systems where you are using an EXOR Jmobile HMI panel and AKD drives.

After selecting the Modbus TCP protocol, you must add your AKD drive's IP address. Additionally, you should change the other settings to match, as is seen in the following screenshot.
