Design Features

  • Connect to & control the Automation1 controller from .NET, C, Python or LabVIEW
  • Deploy applications to Windows or Linux operating systems
  • Execute commands & collect data on the controller
  • Retrieve status from the controller
  • Change controller variables
  • Compile, run & control AeroScript programs
  • Use a command queue with the .Net or C API
  • Configure your system & compile programs using the .NET API

Automation1

The Automation1 .NET, C and Python APIs plus Automation1 Instrument Driver for LabVIEW are part of the user-friendly Automation1 motion control platform, which includes the following:

Cross-Platform Support

The .NET API is built on .NET Core, making the applications deployable on both Windows and Linux operating systems. The C and Python APIs also enjoy cross-platform support. When using Automation1 APIs with drive-based controllers, you can completely remove the Windows operating system from your controls architecture.

Motion Plus More

From programming simple motion to coordinating and synchronizing the motion of multiple axes in your machine, the iSMC provides the flexibility and power you need to tackle today’s automation challenges.

The Automation1 controller enables different approaches to incorporating vision systems, robotics, laser control, sensors and more. Automation1 APIs sit side by side with other APIs to build complex control architectures and custom user interfaces. The Automation1 controller includes the AeroScript program language, which runs on a deterministic real-time operating system. Many users take a hybrid approach, using both an Automation1 API and the AeroScript language for highly-customized, highly performing systems.

Continuous Improvement

The APIs and device drivers improve as the Automation1 platform improves. As we engineer new controller features and capabilities, they are made accessible via the APIs and device drivers.
