Key Features

Automation1 Platform

Automation1 Platform

The Automation1 MDK is the cornerstone of our complete Automation1 motion control platform. It integrates with the Automation1 Intelligent Industrial PC (iPC) and Automation1 Intelligent Software-Based Machine and Motion Controller (iSMC) to connect to motor drives, laser scan head controllers and more over our HyperWire® fiber-optic communication bus.

Custom User Interfaces

Custom User Interfaces

Integrate precision motion control into your custom machine design using the Automation1 .NET API. API calls are used to connect, configure, execute, commands and trigger program execution on the Automation1 controller. Manage communication with other controllers by directly interfacing with communication ports from the .NET API.

Build Smart Machines

Build Smart Machines

Build a smart solution with our industry 4.0-ready controller. Monitor controller and drive status and collect real-time data from the controller for external data analytics. Easily integrate controller data with third-party predictive maintenance tools to ensure reliable machine operation, and verify consistent operation between similar production processes.
