    I downloaded ServorTuner software from Kollmorgen web site. It ask for a password to download motor parameters to drive.Does anybody know the password?
    Password is not for the drive it is for the software.

    Message box says "The configuration file load has been cancelled due to write protection. locate or reset the PIN number for this drive."

    so it could be PIN for drive itself, my original drive does not have a PIN, this came up only with the spare drive.

    Just to give some background, Original drive was configured using ServoTuner V 3.3. This software version did not communicate with spare drive. SO I downloaded latest version from Kollmorgen which is Version 3.5.8. This version ask for PIN to overwrite drive configuration. I am not sure where to get the PIN. Spare drive is brand new. Not configured to any motor before.

    Not sure exactly what your issue is, but here is info from one of the app engineers in response to my asking your question, as a distributor of this stuff, for you:

    The ServoTuner software has a user established password. To get around that password, search for a file called "quickset.ini". Open it as a text file in Notepad. The value of line item "ppItem25" is the password. You can read it and use it, or you can change it and use the new one. I think you can delete it (the value, not the entire line item), and then there will be no password required.

    I have new drives that when I tried to use both of them gives same error 6 (Encorder counter over speed) when I tried to go above 3000rpm.
    No error below 3000rmp.
    I've changed motor/encorder but problem remains.
    If I change the drive with an older version from a running tool no issue found. Problem follows the drive.
    Problem drive firmware version is TEK(32DA41 V2.08 9D24(3)

    Older drives with firmware TEK(32DA41 V2.04 432D(3) works fine without issue.

    Any idea how to downgrade firmware to older version?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I need to run the motor at 4800rpm

    I think the max speed point is programmable is it not? So it is likely not a firmware issue but simply a parameterization issue: increase the max speed from 3000rpm to what you require.

    I tried that and it still didn't work. I had the *.mtr file from the old drive and uploaded it to the new drive and still no luck.

    Finally I struggled for a week together with the application engineer from Kollmorgen application engineer to configure their latest AKD drive and yesterday finally succeeded!!

    Kind of embarrassing for such a simple application with only analog control voltage and drive enable signal used to run a brushless motor at 4800rpm,
    we had to use drive with 1337 page user guide and a 212 page installation manual!!!

    Although marketing flyers advertise "One button tuning" and simple configuration in practice its always a different story!!

    Thanks Mike for your reply.

    2 years later, Similar problem. Different Machine: 2 Yrs ago i gave up on the B8001 and got an AKD-B00606-NBAN-0000. the motor on this machine is AKM42G-EKCN2-00. Using Workbench configuring and getting the machine running was a piece of cake. Now, on a similar machine, i got rid of the B8001 wihout wasting time and got an AKD Drive. Problem? the motor is IDC G34VI-b32-0100-v. Wired everything and got a motor file for a B32 motor from Kollmorgen. Problem now it will enable ok, as soon as i touch the shaft it faults out on foldback. the motor goes to 10 amps. I put the old B8001 and it runs for 2-4 hours then it faults out on step mismatch (reason i'm trying to get rid of it). Any ideas are appreciated. So Far i've tried swaping S and T on the halls, swapping Enc A for B and B for A. Checked all my wiring about 10 times. I havent tried to swap the new AKD with the other that has been running for the past 2 years. I apologize in advance if this post is off-topic on this thread. Any help is appreciated.

    yep, motor phase vs feedbacks is wrong. I do not thinkn the automatic phasing routine works to change the halls around, but you can try it: it is under the feedback 1 tab. but you can get proper hall sequence from kollmorgen for the motor and then WATCH the halls switch on feedback 1 page and change them until you get them right. I suggest until you get control you set currents max on LIMITS page to 3 amps or so.
