Customers now have the option of achieving more power and control in a compact, high-amperage servodrive that offers expanded integration possibilities to support complex motion capabilities in a simpler machine.
RADFORD, VA., 8/16/23— Kollmorgen, a global leader in motion control systems, today announced the new
AKD2G 24A drive. Designed for applications in precision multi-axis servo systems, the new single-cable
optimized drive builds upon the strengths of the AKD2G portfolio including upgraded safety features, SD
card backup and a graphical display with higher amperage to support more applications with higher power
requirements such as conveyors and vertical lifting applications.
Compared to other drives in its class, the AKD2G 24A servo drive provides 3x the continuous current rating
during peak operation for up to 5 seconds — ideal for intermittent-use, high-power servo motors. In these
peak-dependent applications, customers can potentially downsize their servo drive to this new 24A offering.
Kollmorgen’s Motioneering sizing & selection tool provides guidance through the process.
The new AKD2G 24A servo drive provides configurable options including safety level, I/O, feedback and
fieldbus. It supports a secondary brake through a standard X4 connector and allows for faster Smart
Feedback Adapter (SFA) wiring with a standard X5 connector.
For high-performance applications — such as satellite ground stations, robotics, packaging, labeling and
more — customers can rely on Kollmorgen’s unsurpassed support to optimize drive/motor synchronization,
setup and performance. Worldwide product and service availability ensure long-term productivity and
“The AKD2G 24A delivers higher amperage for more applications,” said James Davison, Senior VP/GM at
Kollmorgen. “This high level of flexibility and performance potential means customers aren’t forced to mix
and match drives. Simply put, the expanded AKD2G servo drive family now gives customers more power
and control with less complexity.”
