Automation1 Software-Based Machine Controller

Our Automation1 Software-Based Machine Controller (iSMC) tightly integrates precision motion with process control. Whether you’re programming a simple move, building a complete machine or doing something in between, the Automation1 iSMC delivers high-quality automation and improved throughput.

Because the iSMC integrates with our user-friendly Automation1 Motion Development Kit, you’ll quickly configure and develop your application, easily set up control devices and enjoy programming with features like intelligent autocomplete, context sensitive help, EasyTune®, live build checking, a variable and I/O watch window, and more.

Capable of running a PC-based or drive-based hardware platform, the iSMC allows you flexibility in deploying a wide variety of motion control solutions.

Trajectory & Kinematic Tools

Trajectory & Kinematic Tools

The iSMC runs on a real-time operating system and generates 20 kHz servo motor trajectory rates. With powerful lookahead technology, its Aerotech motion engine translates your programmed trajectory into multi-axis, synchronized commands sent to up to 32 axes over our HyperWire fiber-optic motion bus. With the iSMC’s proprietary C programming language interface, kinematics can be calculated at the same rate as standard trajectories.

Integration Options

Integration Options

Choose how you want to incorporate vision systems, robotics, laser control, sensors and more. Use the .NET API side-by-side with other APIs to build a complex control architecture and custom user interface. Build custom functionality by programming applications with AeroScript. Or take a hybrid approach, using the API and AeroScript language to combine user interface design with high-performance, real-time application code.

Real-Time Programming

Real-Time Programming

Build custom functionality into your application with AeroScript, which is easily accessed in the Studio application’s IDE. Use this modern syntax to build structures, declare variables, perform mathematical operations, call functions, return values and more. Internal libraries include basic and advanced motion, transformations, I/O, controller status and data collection. Build your own libraries and circulate only the compiled version to protect your intellectual property.

Built for Collaboration

Built for Collaboration

The complete Automation1 MDK, which includes Status Utility and Console applications, can be installed on multiple workstations free of charge. This means your entire team can log in and collaborate on an Automation1 iSMC controller.

Pick Your Controller Hardware

Pick Your Controller Hardware

Deploy your program files to run on an Automation1 PC-based or drive-based controller solution. Use the Motion Controller Selection Guide to determine which is best for your application or explore Automation1 controller products.

Command up to 32 axes of coordinated or independent motion and communicate to Automation1 servo motor drives over our HyperWire® fiber-optic communication bus at a 20 kHz trajectory rate.

Choose from seven homing functions for each axis: speed, distance and distance hold jogging controls; axis in position verification and axis stability verification; incremental motion; geared motion; camming motion and freerun motion commands.

Use Position Synchronized Output to control industrial lasers, cameras and more with less latency. Set analog outputs based on motion conditions like vector velocity. Complete on-the-fly end point modification, high-speed registration, constant force generation, spindle control and more.

Access data quickly through the Studio application and libraries. More than 100 axis status items, 50 task status items and 25 system-level status items are available to collect, and each can be displayed using the data visualizer, written to a file and exported to a Windows file.
