This application note demonstrates configuration and addressing for Modbus TCP communications using a Trio Motion Controller to AKD1G.

The application notes is an example only and the implementation and verification of proper operation of the application and system is the programmer's responsibility

This application note demonstrates configuration and addressing for Modbus TCP communications a Automation Drive HMI using their C-More Programming Software.

This application note demonstrates configuration and addressing for Modbus TCP communications a Red Lion HMI using their Crimson 3.0 software.

The application notes is an example only and the implementation and verification of proper operation of the application and system is the programmer's responsibility.

 

Basic functionality was tested with hardware or learned over a Web meeting.

100% compatibility is not guaranteed.

This is part 2 of a two part series. This application note will demonstrate establishing Modbus TCP communications between a Kollmorgen Visualization Builder ( AKI ) project and the variables in a running program in the AKD BASIC drive. Reading and Writing are demonstrated much in the same fashion as Part 1 but using KVB instead of Modbus Poll.

This application note serves as a quick start with simple example using a Modbus Master simulator software called Modbus Poll to read/write over Modbus TCP to/from the AKD BASIC program ( variables ). This is part 1 of a two part series. Part 2 will demonstrate similar methods but using the Kollmorgen Visualization Builder software for our AKI operator panel product line.
This application note demonstrates specifically with Digital MMC Smartdrive with Drive Resident Control Card to Modbus Poll and to KVB/AKI configured as Modbus TCP masters.

This application note demonstrates two methods for achieving a jog forward and jog reverse using Service Motion and Modbus TCP.

This applies to the AKD-B and AKD-P drives as the AKD-T ( BASIC ) and KAS platforms have other methods for achieving the jog ( i.e. in the programming ). A PDF version is attached to this article.

AKD Modbus TCP Landing Page

Note: This Landing Page primarily applies to the AKD-B, P, or T drives. There are other application notes and guides for KAS with PCMM and PDMM controllers on the Kollmorgen Developer Network. See those articles for details that apply to that platform.

Overview and Specifications

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.
