Mechatronics and Automation are interdisciplinary fields that combines the study of mechanics, electronics and automation systems.
Automation Studio™ simulation feature significantly improves teaching and learning of technologies used in Mechatronics systems, such as pneumatics, hydraulics, electrical, programmable logic controllers (Allen-Bradley™, Siemens™, LSIS, etc) and others.
Being able to create Digital Twins of Mechatronics trainers equipment, Automation Studio™ provides the best virtual environment for students to create, simulate and troubleshoot different systems before moving on to the hardware trainers, filling the gap between theory and practice.
Using the Electrical, PLC, Sequential function chart (SFC) / GRAFCET or Structured Text, students can write the logic to control circuits and pre-made Virtual Systems (traffic lights, conveyor, elevator, pick & place, etc.).
Automation Studio™ also allows to exchange data with real devices such as PLCs, Arduino™, controllers, and more through OPC, CAN bus, I/O box, etc.
