Setting the Current Limits of an AKD EtherCAT Drive Using SoftMotion

Updated May 3, 2018

Software

  • LabVIEW SoftMotion Module

Issue Details

In the Kollmorgen Workbench, I can set IL. LimitP and IL. LimitN (positive and negative current limit, respectively). Can I do this in LabVIEW with SoftMotion?

Solution

No. While there are property nodes (Max. Current & Min. Current), they are not supported for AKD EtherCAT Drives. If you try to use these with an AKD EtherCAT Drive, you will most likely receive error -77004.
