RADFORD, VA – Kollmorgen introduces AKD-N - a distributed servo drive solution that significantly reduces cabinet space and cabling hassle, simplifying machine design, set-up and operation. This drive system leverages robust industry IP67-rated drives positioned next to the motor and supplied by a central power module located in the switchgear cabinet. An 11 mm diameter hybrid cable delivers power and fieldbus communication to the AKD-N servo drives. As a result, the drives operate directly in series, supplying up to 4 kW per axis. Safe Torque Off functionality is integrated into the system and can be deactivated on an individual or collective basis. This enables machine builders to achieve safety requirements without adding additional contactors to the panel. Typical applications include packaging machines and production systems in the food and beverage industry.
