Performance vs Value Line

Choose the right cable for your products. Kollmorgen’s 2nd generation products (e.g. AKM2G, AKD2G) require 2G Performance cables. First generation products (e.g. AKM, AKD) are compatible with either 1G Performance or 1G Value Line cables.

  Cable Bend and Flex rating Hybrid vs Dual Cable Connectivity (Products) Cable Length Feedback Options Price
2G Performance Dynamic Both (2G → 2G) (2G → 1G) Custom Lengths (ex. SFD3 up to 75m) SFD & SFD3, BiSS, EnDat, HiPerface, Resolver, and Comcoder $$
1G Performance Dynamic Both (1G → 1G) Custom Lengths (ex. SFD3 up to 75m) SFD & SFD3, BiSS, EnDat, HiPerface, Resolver, and Comcoder $$
1G Value Line Static Dual Only AKM, CDDR and DDR Paired to AKD 1, 3, 6, 9, 12m SFD, BiSS, EnDat, Resolver $

*Hybrid cables are highly engineered to combine power conductors and feedback-signal conductors into one cable. Dual cables solutions separate power from feedback and typically allow for longer cable lengths. SFD3, Hiperface DSL and Endat 2.2 feedbacks are supported in hybrid cable technology.

Communication Cables

Kollmorgen provides pre-terminated CAN bus cables for our drives that support CANopen communication protocol.

We provide industrial-grade shielded Ethernet cables to ensure reliable operation with the lowest possible network latency. These top-quality cables feature PUR jacket material for outstanding durability, and are suitable for industrial applications anywhere in the world.

CANopen Bus Cables

Item Length Order Code
CANopen bus cable 0.15 m P-AKD-CAN-RJ-0-15
CANopen bus cable 0.5 m P-AKD-CAN-RJ-0-50
CANopen bus cable 3.0 m P-AKD-CAN-RJ-3-00
CANopen bus termination plug P-AKD-CAN-TERM
CAN RJ12-SubD9 adapter P-AKD-CAN-9d-0-15

Information for Building Your Own CAN Cables:

According to ISO 11898, you should use a bus cable with a characteristic impedance of 120 Ω. For best results, we recommend CAT5e cable. The usable cable length depends on the transmission rate. The following measured values can be taken as a guide, but they should not be interpreted as limits. Construction details can be found in the Accessories Manual

Cable length, depending on the transmission rate
Transmission rate/kbps 1000 500 250
Maximum cable length/m 20 70 115
