Kollmorgen’s new 32kW drive is one of the most power dense on the market, consuming only 576cm2 of panel space; the smallest drive in the AKD® family, at 1kW, consumes only 99cm2. The AKD platform is one of the highest performing on the market, with a 0.67µs current loop: Approximately 100x the industry-standard speeds of 62.5µs.
In addition to high-servo-performance motors, drives, gearing and actuation, Kollmorgen is known for broad connectivity and ease-of-use: The AKD platform supports Ethernet /IP, Profinet, EtherCAT, Modbus TCP, CANopen, SERCOS III, SynQnet, and TCP/IP. Recent enhancements to HTTP and UDP support in the intelligent “PDMM” version of AKD—Kollmorgen’s drive-resident multi-axis motion controller—satisfies growing demand to interface with PC networks for back office analytics and PC-based SCADA control.
“Whether you specify a complete Kollmorgen system or use one of our elements in an existing architecture, more options means less compromise.” said Scott Evans, Director of Product Planning at Kollmorgen. “Partnering with Kollmorgen enables machine builders to maximize performance while reducing implementation time.”
