Designers can monitor the actual circuit operation and find potential design flaws. This helps validate systems, save time in prototyping phase, and find faults at an early stage in equipment design.
Dynamic and Realistic Simulation in Full Colour
Automation Studio™ simulation capabilities meet the requirements of all supported technologies. During simulation, components become animated and lines are colour-coded according to their states. You can also monitor variables such as pressure, flow, displacement, current, and voltage at any point in a circuit.
Flexible Simulation Parameters
The default simulation parameters supplied with the components eliminate the need to perform initial setup. Simply insert your components and start the simulation. At any time during simulation, you can adjust component parameters and manually control just about any device.
