Rockwell Automation’s New FactoryTalk Motion Analyzer Simplifies Selection of Motion Control Components

Rockwell Automation released its new FactoryTalk Motion Analyzer software that is designed to help machine designers save time and access the data they need to optimize their motion designs. The software enables users to select, analyze and validate their system components using new, more intuitive workflows and comparison tools. The software is now available for download on the Rockwell Automation website.

FactoryTalk Motion Analyzer software consists of a component library that enables the analysis of a wide-variety of user-defined applications. Designers can select their system using a combination of Kinetix motors, Kinetix drives, select PowerFlex drives, and third-party components, such as gearboxes from Rockwell Automation Technology Partners. They can maximize the efficiency of their work by choosing from pre-built application templates or by starting with a blank template and adding components and motion profiles to define an optimum machine.

The analysis tools in FactoryTalk Motion Analyzer software can help to facilitate a better understanding of a machine’s operating condition and make providing solutions easier, enabling system designs to operate at a higher level of performance and energy efficiency.
