Automation1 Motion Development Kit

Built for power and ease of use, the Automation1 Motion Development Kit (MDK) is the most user-friendly interface available for industry-leading precision motion control. Drastically reduce your system setup and deployment time – in some cases from days to minutes.

Tools like the Machine Setup wizard, MachineApps HMI builder, the modern AeroScript™ programming language and a digital oscilloscope enable you to set up, program and optimize servo and stepper motors, precision stages, galvo scanning systems and more in one development environment.

The Automation1 MDK includes the Studio application, Status Utility application, Console application, .NET API, C API, Python API and help files.

Key Features

Easy to Use

Easy to Use

Automation1 is easy to learn and to use. Quick setup tools such as Machine Setup, Checklists and EasyTune allow even a novice to configure precision motion control. Several graphical helper modules exist in the Studio application for motor phasing, homing, servo loop tuning and more.

Fast Development

Fast Development

The controller’s native language, AeroScript, includes libraries, structures, arrays and many other features. Develop and debug quickly with real-time build error checking, intelligent autocomplete and code snippets. Build custom libraries and distribute them without sharing your valuable source code.

Custom Interfaces

Custom Interfaces

New! MachineApps lets you quickly and easily develop a custom user interface for your machine or motion system. Deploy your brand with our tools. Need more? Get more control over your customization using the .NET, C, or Python API. LabVIEW and EPICS drivers are available for integration to data collection systems and scientific instruments.

Flexible Deployment

Flexible Deployment

Deploy your controller solution to an industrial PC or to one of the Automation1 drive-based controllers. See the selection guide to evaluate the differences.

Full Machine Control

Full Machine Control

The Automation1 MDK allows you to configure and program a wide offering of Automation1 drives. It also configures and programs MODBUS I/O, EtherCAT, drive expansion I/O, industrial lasers and several other devices required by modern motion systems.

Quickly add drive electronics and precision motion control mechanics to your motion control system via the Machine Setup wizard. When connected via the HyperWire™ bus, motor drives are automatically identified and added making motion control accessible to professional development teams as well as students and academics.

Our AeroScript™ programming language integrates motion, G-code and process control commands into a single language for precision automation. AeroScript features arrays, structures, libraries and several other modern features. 

Use AeroScript to program meaningful process control as well as realistic motion for the Automation1 software-based motion controller.    

Analyze machine performance data with the Data Visualizer, a powerful digital oscilloscope with access to hundreds of signals from your controller and drives. View data in 1D, 2D and in the frequency domain. View feedback from actual motor drives or perform a motion simulation with virtual axes of motion control. 

Quickly enable, home and jog axes from the axis dashboard. Built for flexibility, the axis dashboard includes a minimized view, maximized view and maximized view with jog controls. The dashboard’s cutting-edge design enables quick and easy control for real motion or system simulation.
