National Instruments (NI), in partnership with Kollmorgen, has revealed that it will extend its motion control solutions. These products, which include drives, motors, linear positioners, gearheads, cables and accessories, are intended to ease the design of sophisticated machinery and equipment, the firms indicated.

NI provides a variety of motion hardware, all programmed through NI's LabVIEW NI SoftMotion Module and based on the LabVIEW reconfigurable I/O architecture, to help engineers create customised and highly configurable motion systems tightly integrated with NI's measurement and control I/O portfolio. Kollmorgen extends that offering to include best-in-class servo technology across a variety of drive and motor product families, added the company.

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 synchronised with any other modules in an NI PXI or NI CompactRIO system. NI also sells the single-cable AKM motor globally, which combines motor power and feedback signals in one connector, reducing wiring cost and complexity.
