ACS Motion Control offers free development software
ACS Motion Control's software can be used with all of its SPiiPlus motion controllers.
ACS Motion Control's simulator tool models an ideal closed loop servo system, allowing users to logically develop multi-axis controller programs in a PC environment without motion control hardware, improving time-to-market. The motion simulator allows for simultaneous application development by multiple users, full simulation of all fault conditions, and reduce project development time by as several weeks. The simulator also includes MMI functionality, which provides program and motion management, configuration, system analysis, servo tuning, programming, parameter viewing, I/O monitoring, and safety tools.
"Our ADK software simulation feature significantly speeds up new machine development by allowing engineers to write, run, analyze and debug motion control programs and I/O logic in parallel with hardware development. This tool is a part of the software installation, which is available free of charge," said Evan Reed, Vice President at ACS Motion Control. "The advanced MMI features provide comprehensive motion analysis, allowing users to fine-tune their systems resulting in better machine throughput, high productivity and faster return on investment.
The ADK software supports stand-alone application programming or host-dependant application programming with C++, Visual Basic and LabView. ACS' advanced software can support 8 axes of demanding, full digital control ACS' software also enables multiprogramming, up to 10 programs can execute simultaneously.
