Hello,

we have six Kollmorgen motor with each connected to a drive AKD-P00606NBCC-E000 and want to run them as slaves controlled by an external real-time target machine (Speedgoat).

By using Matlab, we want to operate the motors with SDOs or PDOs.

We want to run the motors/drivers synchronously in position mode. The AKD is provided with 3 different position modes. For our real-time application, which of those three position modes is appropriate?

Thank you.

Regards

Mete

Hello

the drives support DS402 drive protocol by CoE or CanOpen.

Depending on the fieldbus you would like to use you should refer either to EtherCat or to CanOpen manual for more details.
There you will find information about, how to control the drive by SDO/PDO and which positon modes are suipported for internal and external trajectory.
