THE latest release of Rockwell Automation’s Motion Analyzer software, version 5.000, is designed to make it easier for machine-builders to analyse, optimise, simulate and select motion control systems.
The software now supports MPAI and Kinetix 3 products, and offers an enhanced SolidWorks interface.
More industry-standard indexes have been catered for, including 3rd Order Polynomial (Parabolic), 7th Order Polynomial, Adjusted Sine (Cycloidal) and Modified Trapezoidal.
Further additional features and fixes in the new new version include registration for the ‘Pro’ version and multiple language support.
Using intuitive step-by-step data entry fields, users can rapidly build-up their motion application including options such as load type (linear, rotary and rotary complex) and load data (mass, force, friction and inclination).
This data can then be associated with a number of different variable-versus-time motion profiles, the company says.
