With this simulation software from the company Famic Technologies Inc., hydraulic and electrical circuits can be designed, simulated and documented consequently. In addition to schematics and parts lists, block manifold designs can also be created and transferred to CNC machining applications. Furthermore, the software allows functional tests and the search for errors already during the planning process.
The Wandfluh Catalogue for Automation Studio™ offers an extensive set of data attributes for each component. It includes its PDF specifications sheet, 2D symbol ISO 1219:2012 compliant, images, technical data, commercial information, 3D representation, simulation model(s), virtual test bench(es) and use cases showing that the component behaves according to the manufacturer’s specifications. Furthermore, a Product Configurator is also available, allowing the user to build the component’s part number as per Wandfluh’s type code information. Once the configuration process is completed, a valid part number with all of its corresponding product characteristics is generated.
For instance, in the case of the valve products showed in the figures, the options to choose the desired pressure setting, port size, flow characteristics and more, are available. The product information, technical data and symbol get updated according to the selected options.
Users may simply drag and drop the desired component from the Catalogue into the Automation Studio™ Editor to build their circuit. The component simulation models can be directly used for the design of a hydraulic system, real-time simulation or monitoring in Automation Studio™ and, ultimately, digital twin projects.
Developed and certified in accordance with Famic Technologies’ Quality System, the Wandfluh Catalogue is now available to the entire Automation Studio™ users’ community. To learn more about the content of this catalogue, please download the brochure.
“As a proven hydraulics manufacturer for precise proportional technology and standard valves, we are pleased to see our wide range of valves included in the established system design software Automation Studio™,” explains Roger Waldburger, Product Manager at Wandfluh. “Thanks to a modern design structure and the numerous options available for our valves, a wide range of customized valve variants is possible. Besides explosion-proof and corrosion-protected versions, there are interesting options available such as hand levers, switching position monitoring, or integrated electronics, right up to IoT-capable electronics that are parameterizable via an app. We are pleased that our components are now available as Product-Library for Automation Studio™ where they can be very easily integrated in a hydraulic schema and used for systems simulations."
Richard Gagné, Director of Quality at Famic Technologies, says: “The versatility of the valve models in Automation Studio™ and the clear and thorough technical documentation from Wandfluh made easy the Catalogue creation Famic Technologies team. This Catalogue provides access to simulation models replicating with high fidelity the performance data of each component and allows Wandfluh component integrators to rapidly design hydraulic solutions.”
