Hydraulic systems are used in industrial and mobile machines. These complex systems are designed and presented using schematic drawings where each component is represented by its respective symbol. These schematics allow technical knowledge of the system to be shared between engineers and different parties.
Automation Studio™ software provides a Hydraulic Library containing all the component symbols required to draw your hydraulic system. Once the hydraulic schematic design is completed, Automation Studio™ goes one step further and allows you to simulate the circuit and take accurate measurements of parameters such as pressure and flow at any point in time.
The hydraulic CAD symbols available in Automation Studio™ libraries are compliant with ISO 1219-1 and 1219-2 standards. You have at your disposal thousands of fluid power components such as pumps, motors, directional valves, pressure valves, mechanical components, measuring instruments, fluid conditioning devices, transducers, etc. The components have been grouped by function to make them easier to locate and to accelerate the process of creating schematics.
In the rare occasion where you do not find a specific component symbol, you can easily use the built-in configurators to create them, this includes a user-friendly Directional Valve Spool Designer that lets you create virtually any valve spool position. Automation Studio™ includes must-have features for hydraulic schematics such as dynamically updated Bills of Materials (BOM) and reports, document templates and more.
Each component in Automation Studio™ is preconfigured by default with technical properties, allowing users to quickly simulate their hydraulic system. Component parameters can be adjusted as needed. Even simulation parameters such as performance curves, external loads, leaks, viscosity and thermal characteristics can be configured.
During simulation, your intelligent hydraulic schematic is animated, and technical measurements can be taken at any moment. Simply drag & drop any measuring instrument to the plotters to monitor its evolution over time. Automation Studio™ also includes troubleshooting tools that allow different failures to be created in your hydraulic circuit and the effects on the complete system can be seen.
Trusted by renowned fluid power component manufacturers, Automation Studio™ offers users the ability to select preconfigured components from the manufacturer of their choice and integrate them into their schematic. Each manufacturer component has been parametrized according to the respective specification, enabling efficient and accurate system design and simulation.
All other available technologies, such as Electrotechnical (AC/DC) and PLCs, can be linked together in order to create a Digital Twin of a complete system. To simplify system control, the sequence diagram provides a visual and intuitive tool to promptly create sequences of operation and avoid the need to learn a specific control language.
To better document and share information on a machine design and to improve the ability to troubleshoot your systems, the components used are dynamically documented via the Bill of Material & Report module.
The Hydraulic module is used in markets involved in mobile and industrial machines such as in Agricultural, Construction, Mining, Metallurgy, Forestry and Oil & Gas.
