Famic Technologies has released the first Dana Catalogue in Automation Studio TM , its design and simulation software solution. This version contains all screw-in, logic and CETOP valves developed under Dana’s industry-leading Brevini® brand. With this new catalogue, Automation Studio TM users will be able to design system circuits using Brevini-brand products. The catalogue provides both the symbol of a component and relevant technical/commercial data, as well as the modelling of its behaviour. With advanced simulation capabilities, various system functions can be validated including performance calculations, heat-load requirements and other engineering considerations such as pressure drop, horsepower and volumetric efficiency. The catalogue also includes a Product Configurator, allowing users to select any specific options available to a product. Once selected the part number, symbol and simulation model adapt accordingly.

We have been responding to users’ requests from various industries including the industrial, agriculture, marine, heavy machinery sectors, by developing on-demand components. This interest has been shared with Dana, who already has a worldwide presence in these industries, and it was mutually agreed to create their Brevini products catalogue with its content being validated by Dana. Making available the entire Brevini hydraulics product lines will offer a better support to the Automation Studio TM user community.” About: Famic Technologies Inc.
