Issue Details

Kollmorgen Workbench, has a capability of setting IL. LimitP and IL. LimitN parameters (positive and negative current limit, respectively). Does LabVIEW SoftMotion Module have this functionality?


LabVIEW SoftMotion does not have this functionality. While there are property nodes (Max. Current & Min. Current), they are not supported for AKD EtherCAT Drives. If you try to use these parameters with an AKD EtherCAT Drive, you will most likely receive error:
77004: NIMCDM_invalidAttributeError. The attribute selected is not valid for the current operation.
