Automation1: Complex Motion. Simple Control.


Automation1 is the most user friendly controller platform available. In fact, it often reduces set-up time from days to minutes. It’s also the only platform that virtually eliminates jitter for greater accuracy at higher speeds.

The Automation1 motion control platform includes:

Motion Development Kit (MDK) – The MDK reduces system setup time, allows users to develop advanced programs with the modern Aeroscript programming language and deploys custom user interfaces for Linux.

Software-Based Machine Controller (iSMC) – The iSMC runs on a real-time operating system, generates 20 kHz servo motor trajectories and 100 kHz galvo scan head trajectories, and enables custom machine interfaces that work with application programming interfaces (APIs) from other vendors.

HyperWire® Motion Control Bus – Fiber-optic and light-based, HyperWire enables 20 times the throughput possible with 100 BASE-T Ethernet. The bus simultaneously connects the iSMC to multiple servo motor, galvo scan head, and piezo nanopositioning drives. Each drive can transmit data at peak capacity even when the bus is fully populated.

Intelligent Industrial PC (iPC) – The iSMC is installed on the Automation1 iPC or other qualified industrial PCs.

Drive Hardware – A broad range of Automation1 drives are available for servo motor, galvo scan head or piezo nanopositioner control.
