Fluid Power and Electrical Component Sizing

This module provides valuable computer-aided engineering capabilities helping you identify components expected constraints and performance characteristics.

  • Fast and easy access to applicable formulas, equations and parameter definitions
  • Intuitive calculation sheets provided for each family of components
  • Rapid system prototyping
  • Save money by eliminating oversized components
  • Reduce risk by avoiding undersized components that do not meet expected performances

A Multidirectional Approach

As opposed to traditional means of solving equations where you have to select an entry point, Automation Studio™ calculation sheets allow parameter modification from any point in the circuit. This eliminates the need to proceed in a predetermined step-by-step approach. When you modify or recalculate parameters, variables are modified and can be transferred to the component assigned. In turn, the new parameters can be validated and applied to the component simulation parameters.

From Components to Systems with Simulation

Once each component has been sized, it becomes easy to establish the overall system requirements by running a simulation and establishing operating sequences. This turns Automation Studio™ into a valuable tool to quickly designs workable circuits. For example, you can rapidly determine the energy consumption in your fluid power system and optimize operating costs.

Quick Access to Equations and Definitions

Automation Studio™ becomes a quick reference, saving time in searching for information from data books or deriving equations. The unit systems can be defined, and results displayed in any unit system, making conversion quick and easy, especially when entering component data retrieved from various catalogues.
