Automation Studio™ Educational FeaturesSee New Features of version E6.3
Thousands of Symbols at Hand
Comprehensive sets of libraries with ISO components that can be used to teach a wide array of subjects related to hydraulics, pneumatics, electrical and control technologies.
Easily create your own library with required components specific to an exercise or laboratory. Also, reproduce any Lab equipment to simulate them before the hands-on experience.
Using the Electrical and PLC Libraries as well as the SFC module, students simply link sensors, switches, lights, conveyors, etc., in order to make the pre-made Virtual Systems operate according to the teacher’s instructions.
Online remote access license connection for teachers and students. You can prepare and simulate your courses and homework from home, school or workplace.
Connect to Real Devices
In order to connect Automation Studio™ to an external hardware, you can either use an I/O interface kit or an OPC Client Server.
Insert Pictures and Text on Schematics
Insert texts and images to your schematics to create complete documented circuits.
Link between all Technologies
All technologies can be linked together to create a complete mechatronic system that reinforces the student understanding of system interactions.
Linked Videos, Hyperlinks, Files, etc.
Document your components by adding external links to videos, files, and others, to enhance understanding of these components or systems.
All components have properties that can be easily changed in order to visualize their effect during simulation. Create and configure valves, cylinders, motors, etc. to obtain a component graphically and technically compliant to real performances.
HMI 2D/3D- Animation according to Schematics
Create 2D or 3D animation linked with the circuit, enhancing your schematic and making it more visual for students. Use the 3D editor for creating and importing 3D parts in STEP, STL and IGES.
Cut & Paste to other Applications
Cut and Paste directly into another application with a great resolution and in colour to create assignments.
The simulation modes "Normal", "Slow Motion", "Step by Step" and "Pause" allow users to control the simulation.
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.
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.
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.
Customizable and dynamic Bill of Material that can be placed directly on the schematic or exported to create a report.
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.
Print & Export
Simply print to any size of paper or export your circuit in multiple formats to share with other applications.
Automation Studio™ allows to easly create control panel that controls your circuits, virtual systems or equipments.
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.
Select from predefined templates or create your own with the default information of your choice like school logo, BOM, etc.
The animated component cross-sections illustrate the internal functioning of components. The animations are synchronized with the circuit simulation.
Realistic Measuring Instruments
Realistic measuring tools: multimeter, oscilloscope, hydraulic tester, thermometer and manometer, can be used to reproduce real life measuring experience.
Create or activate pre-defined component failure to develop troubleshooting skills. Failures can be activated by preset conditions or manually during simulation.
Create and simulate schematics using real life component behaviour from our extensive manufacturers' catalogue that includes PDF specifications and test benches.
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.
Using the Mechanism Manager, mechanical bodies can be linked to Fluid Power actuators to simulate and animate their effects.
