Competitive Conversion Kit
During our recent Competitive Conversion Tool Kit & Bundled Solutions discussion, we outlined a competitive conversion program for Sigma 5 servo solutions from Yaskawa and Kinetix 300/350 with MPL servo motors from Rockwell. This conversion program provides bundled part numbers and technical crossover information which includes the AKD® drive, AKM® servo motor and cables ranging from 270W – 1.9kW. This information is applicable for Rockwell customers using Ethernet/IP and Yaskawa customers using pulse & direction or analog for drive control. Customers who have converted from Rockwell to the Kollmorgen AKD solution with Ethernet/IP have found the following links on the Kollmorgen Developer Network (KDN) very useful:
The breadth and depth of Kollmorgen’s servo solutions, along with the capabilities of the WorkBench interface software, give customers a competitive edge in the marketplace.
