Automation1 Motion Development Kit

Built for power and ease of use, the Automation1 Motion Development Kit (MDK) is the most user-friendly interface available for industry-leading precision motion control. Drastically reduce your system setup and deployment time – in some cases from days to minutes.

Tools like the Machine Setup wizard, our modern AeroScript™ programming language and a digital oscilloscope enable you to set up, program and optimize servo and stepper motors, precision stages, galvo scanning systems and more in one development environment.

The Automation1 MDK includes the Studio application, Status Utility application, Console application, Automation1 .NET and C APIs and help files.

Key Features

Easy to Use

Easy to Use

Automation1 is easy to learn and to use. Quick setup tools such as Machine Setup, Checklists and EasyTune allow even a novice to configure precision motion control. Several graphical helper modules exist in the Studio application for motor phasing, homing, servo loop tuning and more.

Fast Development

Fast Development

The controller’s native language, AeroScript, includes libraries, structures, arrays and many other features. Develop and debug quickly with real-time build error checking, intelligent autocomplete and code snippets. Build custom libraries and distribute them without sharing your valuable source code.

Custom Interfaces

Custom Interfaces

Use the current .NET or C API to program custom user interfaces. New EPICS drivers help integrate Automation1 with scientific instruments. Coming soon: a Python API, LabVIEW VIs and the Automation1 MachineApps HMI builder.

Flexible Deployment

Flexible Deployment

Deploy your controller solution to an industrial PC or to one of the Automation1 drive-based controllers. See the selection guide to evaluate the differences.

Full Machine Control

Full Machine Control

The Automation1 MDK allows you to configure and program a wide offering of Automation1 drives. It also configures and programs MODBUS I/O, drive expansion I/O, industrial lasers and several other devices required by modern motion systems.

Quickly add drive electronics and precision motion control mechanics to your motion control system via the Machine Setup wizard. When connected via the HyperWire™ bus, motor drives are automatically identified and added.

Our AeroScript™ programming language integrates motion, G-code and process control commands into a single language for precision automation. AeroScript features arrays, structures, libraries and several other modern features. 

Analyze machine performance data with the Data Visualizer, a powerful digital oscilloscope with access to hundreds of signals from your controller and drives. View data in 1D, 2D and in the frequency domain.

Quickly enable, home and jog axes from the axis dashboard. Built for flexibility, the axis dashboard includes a minimized view, maximized view and maximized view with jog controls.
