Within the system engineering sector, automation is playing an increasingly important role and is key to the achievement of greater productivity. Our modular MOVITOOLS® MotionStudio software provides exactly the tools you need to consistently support this drive towards automation.
Flawless planning and automation with MOVITOOLS® MotionStudio
In order to stay competitive, system manufacturers and operators need to focus on increasing automation. Manufacturing processes are characterised by increasing throughputs, higher product quality, and lower operating costs. The only way to achieve this is by using suitable modern systems and machines. Our all-in-one, integrated drive technology will help ensure the reliability, efficiency, and increased productivity of your manufacturing processes in the years to come, thereby helping you to consolidate your market position.
Our MOVITOOLS® MotionStudio engineering software is an important key to your success. It provides you with all the tools you need for optimal support right from the start, and ensures the seamless operation of your system. Whether used individually or in combination, these tools are essential for quick and effective automation.
You will also benefit from the fact that MOVITOOLS® MotionStudio is unit-independent. The software scans the units and then automatically detects all stations connected to the configured interfaces and displays them as nodes in a unit tree. You can use the context menu for each node to easily select and start the tools you need. Using just one modular software system, you can configure, program, and diagnose the majority of our inverters.
Communication channels can also be selected freely. Thanks to our communication server, MOVITOOLS® MotionStudio allows you to configure different communication media and up to four simultaneous communication channels. The server also allows the centralised maintenance of data and use of modern remote maintenance technology.
