A3200 Motion Composer Suite

This product is not recommended for new designs. Instead, please see the Automation1 Motion Development Kit for all new designs. Part of the A3200 machine and multi-axis motion control platform, the Motion Composer Suite enables your team to deploy complex automation solutions with ease.

Quickly set up drives, motors and stages with the configuration manager – one of several tools designed to make your team fast and effective. With integrated tools for configuring an EtherCAT, PROFINET or Modbus fieldbus network, setting up process automation is also quick and easy.

The suite includes the A3200 configuration manager, Motion Composer IDE, Digital Scope and Status Utility applications.

Key Features

Real-Time Applications

Develop and Test Real-Time Applications

With Motion Composer, you can develop, debug and deploy real-time application code to the controller. Connect to a “virtual controller” and simulate your application in a virtual mode, so you can prove-out complex processes. Not working at the real-time level or prefer a standard programming language? Access the controller via .NET, C and C++ libraries; a REST API; a MATLAB library; and LabVIEW VIs.

Getting Results

Getting Results

Motion Composer can optimize your application for any level of precision. It works with point-to-point, contoured and holding position motion types. Run your motion program on the controller while the digital scope collects position, velocity and acceleration data signals. See the results plotted in multidimensional views and rely on Fourier transforms to identify any troublesome frequency content.

Drive Configuration

Single-Button Drive Configuration

Our HyperWire® fiber-optic communication bus – which has 20 times the bandwidth of 100BASE-T Ethernet buses – makes it simple to configure drives. Just connect the drives, power them on and let the drive configuration tool automatically assign communication channels.
