Mon 20th Jan 2020 - The Kollmorgen AKD2G Servo Drive

The AKD2G servo drive from Kollmorgen introduces the Servo-on-a-Chip:
Now with even more safety features. A powerful compute engine that can control 2 axes simultaneously while handling Safe Motion Monitor (an integrated safety solution), and up to 28 I/O.
In addition the design has been streamlined by optimising the AKD2G for
single-cable motors.

Kollmorgen AKD2GFlexible

  • One and two axis variants available
  • Modular design allows the user to specify only the features needed
  • Supports a variety of feedback devices—SFD & HIPERFACE® DSL standard; Optional feedbacks include EnDat2.2, BiSS 1.0, Analog Sine/Cos encoder, incremental encoder, resolver and more
  • Multiple bus choices for system optimization, including EtherCAT® & FSoE and CANopen®
  • SIL-qualified over-voltage, current, and temperature detection provided for added dependability
  • Optional Safe Motion Monitor (SMM), SIL3/PLe
  • Industry-leading power density for greater flexibility in mounting
  • Fits into a 10” deep control panel

Easy to Use

  • Plug-and-play compatibility with Kollmorgen controls and motors
  • WorkBench GUI, acclaimed for customer experience and usability
  • Hybrid Motor-Power connector is optimized for single-cable motors:
  • No adaptors, no D-subs, no splitters
  • Cage-clamp spring terminal connectors on I/O allow for fast and easy installation
  • Optically-isolated I/O reduces noise, and eliminates need for additional hardware


  • Accommodates changing load conditions immediately:
  • Current loop updates in 1.28 ?s, nearly 50x the speed of our nearest competitors
  • Velocity and position loops lead the market at 62.5 ?s and 250 ?s, respectively
  • Servo on a ChipTM includes dual-core ARMTM A9, 800 MHz µP, 1.5 M gates
  • Auto-tuning with a click of a button gets you started quickly
  • Wizard-based tuning uses advanced Bode Plot tool to help you efficiently manual-tune when desired
  • Fast data acquisition with TCP/IP Ethernet service channel
