  • Parameter file check from PLC to drive 
  • Upload/download of parameters from/to several drives using WorkBench consoleReference the 1.5 Release Notes for additional features and product improvements. Please update to WorkBench version 1.5.0.00000 or later when using this Firmware.

AVAILABILITY AND NEXT STEPS

Effective Monday, October 17th all AKD drives shipped from the factory will have the new 1.5 Firmware and WorkBench release. Be sure to update your existing drives by going to the link below (and click on “Software / Firmware” tab) for the latest Firmware, WorkBench files, and release notes.

HARDWARE / FIRMWARE COMPATIBILITY

Kollmorgen provides specific Firmware files for each model variant. To upgrade a drive to the latest Firmware version, use the file that matches the model number of your drive. For example, a Base Analog drive with model number AKD-Bxxxxx-NAAN-0000 would use Firmware file AKD-B-NAAN-V01-05-00-000.i00.

Model variants are not software interchangeable. For example, an AKD CANopen® drive can not be changed to an AKD SynqNet® drive. Please contact Kollmorgen customer support to place an order for new model variants.

WorkBench is compatible with all previous AKD Firmware versions. WorkBench forward compatibility, however, cannot be ensured. When a behavior in the Firmware changes, an older WorkBench version may not function correctly with the new Firmware. Kollmorgen recommends that you update WorkBench when you install new Firmware.
