Yes, the Kollmorgen AKD2G dual axis servo drive has passed EtherCAT conformance testing. Here is a link to servo drive firmware download which includes the ESI file, https://www.kollmorgen.com/en-us/products/drives/servo/akd2g/akd2g-servo-drive/#tab4.
Thank you for the fast response.
To confirm, the NI Labview Softmotion software does support the AKD2G dual-axis servo drive, when using EtherCAT, correct?
This is a NI Softmotion / Dual-Axis when using EtherCAT support question, as I do understand that Kollmorgen does a good job already for ensuring EtherCAT support is working for their products -however, will it work in NI Softmotion?
When referring to the NI Softmotion devices support webpage at NI website, they state that only single-axis drives are supported over EtherCAT, which possibly contradicts your answer unless your information is the most recent and correct for confirmed Softmotion working on this drive.
Hopefully you can kindly specifically confirm that NI Softmotion supports the Kollmorgen dual-axis over EtherCAT?
SoftMotion does not support dual axis EtherCAT servo drives. The native AKD support in SoftMotion supports the first generation AKD EtherCAT drives only.
