Kollmorgen has its motion control platform Automation Suite (KAS) supplemented by a Profinet interface. The fieldbus connection increases the flexibility of machine builders and users in the choice of the automation system and thus enables the realization of the best possible application performance. Subsequent integration into existing machines is also simplified by the user-friendly software. The Profinet interface also benefits the AKD PDMM servo inverterin which the KAS is integrated.
The machine automation platform KAS is specifically designed for high-performance applications where complex motion sequences must be perfectly synchronized with each other. It offers a high-performance PLC and motion control functionality and allows programming via the graphical, intuitive "Pipe Network" programming environment with drag-and-drop functionality. Alternatively, the five standardized IEC 61131 programming languages as well as the motion control "PLC open" library and numerous motion control function blocks are available. The sophisticated controls and control circuits of the KAS enable operation with higher bandwidths and higher throughput.
The AKD PDMM servo drives with the integrated motion control platform KAS on board are high-performance, compact, flexible, scalable and very dynamic. The two-in-one solution - motion control and controller - eliminates the need for a separate industrial PC and opens up new possibilities in the design and operation of single and multi-axis machines.
