The DKC drive controller series is still one of the most popular. DKC02.3-040-7-FW is a series 2, version 3 with 40A rated current.
FW in the type code indicates that this drive requires firmware, which is a separate item. If your DKC02.3-040-7-FW needs replacement, be sure that you have a reliable copy of the firmware. This will allow you to carry all the configuration to the replacement unit.
Do you need a replacement DKC02.3-040-7-FW?
If your DKC02.3-040-7-FW is not functioning correctly, there may be multiple reasons for the problem. Call us at (479) 422-0390 for phone support. We can often tell you the problem — and even the solution — over the phone.
If you need a new DKC02.3-040-7-FW, it’s essential that you have the exact type of unit. One DKC is not the same as another. You must also have the right software and firmware.
Another point to consider is that this device is no longer made new. If you see a DKC02.3-040-7-FW offered on eBay or Amazon, it will be a used component. Since original parts are available only at the Rexroth factory, a used drive will have worn parts and probably also scavenged parts.
