A Multidirectional Approach
As opposed to traditional means of solving equations where users have to select an entry point, Automation Studio calculation worksheets allow parameter modification from any point in the circuit.
There is no need to proceed in a predetermined step by step approach. When users modify or recalculate parameters, variables modified by the calculation process appear in a different color, making it easy to locate affected parameters.
In turn, the new parameters can be validated and applied to the component simulation parameters.
From Components to Systems
Once each component has been sized, it becomes easy to establish the
overall requirements of a system by running a simulation and establishing operating sequences. This turns Automation Studio into a valuable tool to quickly design workable circuits. For example, you can rapidly determine the air consumption in a pneumatic circuit and optimize the installation costs.
Fluid Power Component Sizing
for Higher Productivity
• Allows rapid pneumatic and hydraulic system prototyping
• Provides easy access to formulas, equations, definitions and help
• Saves time and money in component sizing, and validates sizing results
• Performs multidirectional calculation
Printing a Data Sheet
Once a component has been sized, users can click on the print button to print the complete datasheet. It then becomes easy to search for a matching device from a manufacturer's catalog.
Quick Access to Equations and Definitions
At any time, the user can have quick access to the applicable equations and parameters definitions. As a result Automation Studio™ becomes an online 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 catalogs.
