PCMM: Programmable Controller, Multi-axis Master

Our PCMM controller delivers maximum performance from an embedded controller, capable of running small, machine modules, to complete 20+ axes machines and I/O. It packs a powerful PLC, Motion Controller, and EtherCAT master into a small package.

Product available worldwide


  • Kollmorgen Automation Suite™ provides fully integrated programming, testing, setup and commissioning
  • Embedded web server utility simplifies service
  • Control 20 axes or more* while reducing machine footprint:
    • EtherCAT multi-axis master and motion controller
    • Full IEC61131-3 soft PLC for machine control, with support for all 5 programming languages
    • Choice of PLCopen for motion or Pipe Network™ for programming motion control
    • 32 kB non-volatile memory stores machine data to eliminate scrap upon restart after power failure
    • SD Card slot simplifies backup and commissioning, with no PC required
    • Onboard I/O includes 6 digital inputs, 2 digital outputs. Additional system I/O can be added with the AKT series of remote I/O 
  • Works with Kollmorgen Visualization Builder™ for programming AKI human-machine interface panels
  • Enables plug-and-play compatibility with all Kollmorgen servo drives and servo motors
  • Provides access to all the advantages of Kollmorgen´s breadth of motor platforms including AKM®, CDDR™, and other direct-drive technologies

* Maximum axis count depends on motion/automation complexity and performance (20 or more axis possible for low complexity machine at 1 kHz network update rate, 8 axes based on medium complexity machine at 4 kHz network update rate,)


  • Reduce panel space, wiring costs and build time with an embedded multi-axis programmable machine and motion controller or use the integrated AKD-PDMM for even more space savings
  • Accelerate design time and simplify integration by using a single, scalable development environment to program PCMM™ or AKD PDMM®
  • Minimize risk and maximize performance with our industry-leading AKD drive hardware integrated with the proven architecture of Kollmorgen Automation Suite
  • Deliver advanced features in a higher-performing machine with the advantages of Pipe Network™ and Kollmorgen co-engineering capabilities
  • Control multiple high-performance servo axes without the need for a separate controller, saving cabinet space and wiring costs
  • Build a complete system with optimal performance using drives, motors, I/O modules, HMI panels and other components designed to work together
