Automation studio educational cut and paste applications

Cut & Paste to other Applications

Cut and Paste directly into another application with a great resolution and in colour to create assignments.

Automation studio educational simulation

Simulation Mode

The simulation modes "Normal", "Slow Motion", "Step by Step" and "Pause" allow users to control the simulation.

Automation studio educational dynamic measuring tool

Dynamic Measuring Tool

Virtual measuring instruments can be placed directly on the component to measure a wide range of parameters that can be recorded and viewed in the Plotter.

Automation studio fluid power electrical plotter

Fluid Power and Electrical Plotter

With a simple Drag and Drop operation, you can plot simulated parameters which can be exported to a text file for further analysis.

Automation studio educational create video files

Create Video Files of your Project

Create video files of your projects that can be used with other applications, or record the entire application for training purpose.

Automation studio educational bill of material


Customizable and dynamic Bill of Material that can be placed directly on the schematic or exported to create a report.

Automation studio educational iec nema electrical

IEC & NEMA Electrical Standards

Automation Studio™ offers the possibilities to create circuits using both American and European standards, to initiate students to the differences in symbols.

Automation studio print export

Print & Export

Simply print to any size of paper or export your circuit in multiple formats to share with other applications.

Automation studio educational control panel

Control Panel

Automation Studio™ allows to easly create control panel that controls your circuits, virtual systems or equipments.

Automation studio educational dynamic simulation

Dynamic, Realistic, and Visual Simulation

The simulation allows the accurate reproduction of the system behaviour in a dynamic and visual way. During simulation, components are animated, lines and wires are colour-coded according to their state.

Automation studio educational templates


Select from predefined templates or create your own with the default information of your choice like school logo, BOM, etc.

Cut-Away Animation

The animated component cross-sections illustrate the internal functioning of components. The animations are synchronized with the circuit simulation.

automation studio realistic measuring instrument

Realistic Measuring Instruments

Realistic measuring tools: multimeter, oscilloscope, hydraulic tester, thermometer and manometer, can be used to reproduce real life measuring experience.

automation studio troubleshooting


Create or activate pre-defined component failure to develop troubleshooting skills. Failures can be activated by preset conditions or manually during simulation.

automation studio manufacturers catalogues

Manufacturers' Catalogues

Create and simulate schematics using real life component behaviour from our extensive manufacturers' catalogue that includes PDF specifications and test benches.

automation studio variable frequency drives

Variable Frequency Drives

Motor soft starters and variable frequency drives are available. VFDs are built according to manufacturers’ specifications such as Siemens™, Allen Bradley™, WEG™, etc.

automation studio mechanical links

Mechanism Manager

Using the Mechanism Manager, mechanical bodies can be linked to Fluid Power actuators to simulate and animate their effects.

automation studio interactive component sizing

Component Sizing
