The AKD2G is a manufactured by Kollmorgen and is PushCorp's next generation amplifier. This amplifier will power, provide feedback, and control the speed of the PushCorp servo driven products. There are several standard and optional control protocals for connecting to the drive.
- +/- 10VDC Analog
- Ethernet TCP/UDP
Our products come standard with the AKD2G that is capable of 24 amps continuous and has the supply voltage of 208-480VAC. For the SM1202, we offer a 12 amp continuous version with a supply voltage of 120V-240VAC. Please note that running the 1202 with 120 VAC will de-rate the max spindle speed by 50%.
With the AKD2G, controlling our servo spindles has never been easier. Using EthernetIP or ProfiNet, you can communicate directly with a fieldbus enabled robot controller or PLC.
This will allow you to have full control over the device, which includes adjusting speed, enabling the spindle, and monitoring it’s performance. For customers that would prefer an analog/discrete solution, the unit accepts analog +/- 10V signal to control the spindle speed. Then, 24VDC signals are used for the enable and the the ready to operate. However, if total adjustability of the spindle speed is not required 24VDC inputs can be configured to change the spindle’s rpm to preset values.
Alternatively, we have a turn-key UL certified EthernetIP panel. The SMFBCON comes with the amplifier integrated into an electrical enclosure so the only connections required are 3-phase 480VAC power, the safety inputs/outputs and a single ethernet connection back to a robot or PLC. This packaged solution is our most complete controls offering to ensure a streamlined deployment!
