Big savings to be made with Kollmorgen’s AKD-N distributed servo technology.

Kollmorgen AKD-N

AKD-N servo drives from Kollmorgen have been designed to be mounted close to associated motors greatly reducing cabling and cabinet size. The drives come with highly integrated functionality and unrivalled connection technology. AKD-N drives have a robust construction and IP67 protection rating making them ideal for machines requiring washdown or in harsh environments.

It is possible to connect up to AKD-N drives to a common power supply (“AKD-C”) via EtherCAT to reduce system complexity even further, and use the optional fieldbus port to connect remote I/O devices without additional network hubs and long cable runs.

AKD-N offers a complete solution for the next generation of machine design – helping simplify design and reducing the machine footprint.
