Kollmorgen AKD Drive

Recommended Posts

Good Morning.

I am about to enter the realms of the unknown again.

I need to control a kollmorgen drive over Modbus. What I would like to do is use step and direction (I think).

I am setting up a X axis Z axis linear traverse for a printing application.


X axis

My task is to set a home position, accelerate the drive to a position (set in settings), at that position keeping the velocity constant turn on an output, until a input (end of print) comes back from the printer, then accelerate back to the home position.

Z axis

My task is to go to a home position and stay there until the above end of print input, then move the Z axis up a position, again variable (set in settings)


This will occur 6 times, then both Axis should go to the home positions ie bottom left hand corner.


Does anyone have a good starting point for me or suggestions (apart from drink)
