The Mentor Session Series for AKD2G servo drives provides an interactive learning experience with instructor demonstrations that allow you to observe programming techniques and strategies. We will begin with how to set up the drive, then lead you through the process of programming various functions. The instructor will also answer any questions you may have in real time.

Our Mentor Session Series provides the flexibility to target your own development in areas where you might need some additional education. Check back often, as we routinely update the Mentor Sessions with both on-demand learning opportunities as well as our very popular live events.
