Correct sizing of your drive is a key in achieving optimal motor control. DriveSize, therefore, helps you select the optimal motor, drive and transformer for your machine’s needs. It can also compute network harmonics and create dimensioning documents, to simplify your work.
Functional safety design tool (FSDT-01) lets you accelerate the safety design process to make machines adequately safe for people, as well as protecting the environment against hazards. It’s a Windows application that does functional safety design, calculations and verification.

The FSDT supports both standards, ISO 13849-1 and IEC 62061, helping you meet their verification and documentation requirements for compliance, as well as the European Machine Directive.
Automation Builder, our integrated software suite, allows machine builders and system integrators to automate their machines and systems in a productive way. Combining the tools required for configuring, programming, debugging and maintaining automation systems from a common intuitive interface, Automation Builder addresses the largest single cost element of many of today's industrial automation projects: programming.
