Motion analyser software shortens design time

November 2018 Motion Control & Drives

Rockwell Automation has released an updated version of the Allen-Bradley Motion Analyser software tool, which offers an optimised user experience with intuitive navigation and in-workflow product selection. This can help engineers more efficiently develop complete motion control systems for their machines.

Using the Motion Analyser software, engineers can determine a system’s specifications, evaluate multiple products to find the best fit, finalise the design and create a bill of materials. The tool can also help reduce motion-system design time from a multiday process to a few hours.

“Sizing a motion system can be time consuming,” said Christo Buys, business manager, control systems, Rockwell Automation Sub-Saharan Africa. “In the latest release of the software, we have simplified workflows to improve the user experience. We have also added additional features that make the process of designing a motion system as efficient as possible.”

Key improvements include faster axis definition and sizing, redesigned solution search and configure components features, additional application template profile support, and the ability to import from a legacy motion profile with the support of more advanced motion segments.
