The AKD PDMM™ combines a single AKD servo axis and a master controller that supports up to seven (or more) additional AKD axes in a single, compact package. It integrates control for multiple high-performance axes with I/O and HMI interfaces, and includes the full automation capabilities of the Kollmorgen Automation Suite™ – giving a single, scalable development solution for both AKD PDMM and PAC-based machines.

AKD PDMM Benefits

  • Reduces panel space, wiring costs and build time — eliminating the need for a separate controller in many applications
  • Accelerates design time and simplifies integration by using a single, scalable development environment to program up to 128 axes
  • Minimises risk and maximises performance with the industry-leading AKD drive hardware integrated with the proven architecture of Kollmorgen Automation Suite
  • Delivers advanced features in a higher-performing machine with the advantages of Pipe Network™ and Kollmorgen’s co-engineering capabilities
  • Build a complete system with optimal performance using drives, motors, I/O modules, HMI panels and other components designed to work together

AKD PDMM Features

  • Kollmorgen Automation Suite™ provides fully integrated setup, testing, programming and commissioning
  • Embedded web server utility simplifies service
  • Control 8 axes or more* while reducing machine footprint:
    • EtherCAT multi-axis master motion controller integrated with a standard AKD™ drive axis
    • 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
    • Onboard Profinet IO (Master & Slave)
    • Onboard Ethernet/IP (Scanner & Adapter)
    • 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 13 digital inputs, 4 digital outputs, 1 analog input, 1 analog output (expandable with AKT series of remote I/O)
  • Works with Kollmorgen Visualization Builder™ for programming AKI human-machine interface panels
  • Enables plug-and-play compatibility with your servomotor
  • Provides access to all the advantages of Kollmorgen´s breadth of motor platforms including AKM™, CDDR™, and other direct-drive technologies
  • Supports real-time performance feedback from Smart Feedback Devices (SFD), EnDat2.2, 01, BiSS, Analog Sine/Cos encoder, incremental encoder, HIPERFACE®, and resolver
  • Full-frequency autotuning ensures perfect motion across the performance spectrum

* Maximum axis count depends on motion/automation complexity and performance (8 axes nominal based on medium complexity at 4 kHz network update rate)
