New Features

  • AKD2G Drive Integration:
    • Single and Multi-Axis drive variants
    • Features not yet available: firmware download, capture, I/O, feedback #2-5
    • Note: Please contact Kollmorgen for latest AKD2G firmware and KAS software.
  • New PCMM Dual-Core model
    • Supported with PLCopen Motion Engine
    • PipeNetwork Motion Engine is not fully supported yet.
  • Windows 10 Support (32-bit and 64-bit)
  • PAC software support has been removed due to hardware End-of-Life

Starting with a project template saves the user development time. KAS Project Starter Templates contain:

  • code for programming motion and machine code
  • an internal control panel for developing and debugging programs
  • a HMI program to use with the Kollmorgen AKI HMI’s.

The user can then build on this foundation to complete their application. The following video reviews key features in the KAS project starting template.

Starting with the 3.04 release of KAS there are PLC function blocks to send or receive data with TCP/IP communication. The below video goes through the two attached sample programs. One is a program with TCP/IP receive function blocks that in the video is run on a PDMM controller. The other has TCP/IP send function blocks and is run on the simulator on a development computer. Under the video is an application note going through which new function blocks need to be used an in what order in order to send and/or receive TCP/IP data.

Hello there!

I want moving by arbitrary trajectory given by a table with set of points using PCMM.

How can I set the necessary path along which my linear motor will move?

For example, I have the coordinates of the sine motion points, should I use the MC_MoveAbsolute function block for each of the many points?
