Automation Studio is a circuit design, simulation and project documentation software for fluid power systems and electrical projects conceived by Famic Technologies in 1996. It is also used for CAD, maintenance, and training purposes. Mainly used by engineers, trainers, and service and maintenance personnel, Automation Studio can be applied in the design, training and troubleshooting of hydraulics, pneumatics, synoptics, and electrical control systems.
Automation Studio has 14 symbol libraries (for standards such as ISO, IEC, JIC and NEMA).
Hydraulics (proportional & servo)
System Analysis Tool
Fluid Power & Electric Component Sizing
Spool Designer & Pump Configurator
Bill of Material & Report
PLC Ladder Logic
HMI & Control Panel
Sequential Function Chart (Grafcet)
AS is used as a simulation tool in hydraulics,
pneumatics, and electrical engineering. The
libraries incorporate international graphic
standards, including ISO, DIN, IEC, NEMA, and JIC.
Automation Studio Hydraulics’ functions are used
for hydraulic system engineering purposes. AS
Hydraulics includes a specific symbol
library and uses modeling techniques such
the Bernoulli’s law and the gradient method.
AS Hydraulics is the main aspect of Automation
Studio: it is used to conceive and to test
hydraulic systems while taking into account
thermodynamics parameters. It displays inside
views of the elements in the schematics. The AS
library (proportional hydraulics) includes
additional elements such as commands and control devices (PID controller, CANbus, and servo-direction).
Fluid power is one of the central elements in
AS Pneumatics is similar to AS Hydraulics, but
the simulation is done for gas rather than
fluids. This library, like AS Hydraulics, is
used to design and test models.
Thus, the simulation elements that are used
are not the same as those in the hydraulics
