National Instruments and Kollmorgen Collaborate to Provide Advanced Servo Solutions
NI's industry-leading reconfigurable motion control software and controllers combined with Kollmorgen drive and motor technology simplify the design of sophisticated machinery
NI provides a variety of motion hardware, all programmed through the National Instruments LabVIEW NI SoftMotion Module and based on the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O architecture, to help engineers create customized and highly configurable motion systems tightly integrated with NI's broad measurement and control I/O portfolio.Kollmorgen extends that offering to include servo and stepper technology across a variety of drive and motor product families.
For example, Kollmorgen's EtherCAT AKD brushless servo drive is integrated directly with NI SoftMotion, empowering machine builders to create high-axis-count servo systems without EtherCAT programming. These servo systems are inherently synchronized with any other modules in an NI PXI or NI CompactRIO system. NI also sells the new single-cable AKM motor globally, which combines motor power and feedback signals in one connector, reducing wiring cost and complexity.
"NI offers a new global channel and unrivaled customer support for our products," said Ray Butler, vice president and general manager at Kollmorgen. "NI reconfigurable motion controllers and Kollmorgen servo system technology provide a one-two punch that can knock out your toughest engineering challenges."
