    Time-saving startup – simply enter parameters and that's it

MOVIKIT® stands for ready-to-use software modules that are used for everything from simple drive functions through to complex motion control functions. Our goal is added value for you: Shortening startup times considerably by providing configurable automation and motion control functions.

MOVIKIT® makes complex processes simple

Parameterizing instead of programming: The MOVIKIT® software modules are easily started up via graphical configuration and diagnostics. Our range of standardized software modules includes everything from simple drive functions such as speed control and positioning to challenging motion sequencesand motion control functions such as electronic cam and robotics. Nonetheless, if the application requires, MOVIKIT® software modules can of course also be freely programmed.

The MOVIKIT® software modules are perfectly coordinated with MOVI-C® CONTROLLER control technology. Using the MOVISUITE® engineering software, the appropriate MOVIKIT® software module is allocated directly to an axis or the controller and configured via graphical wizards and editors. As a result, you have access to all relevant parameters from motor startup to software settings in a single parameterization interface. MOVIKIT® is integrated into the IEC user program at the touch of a button using automatic IEC code generation. As you can see, MOVIKIT® makes even this step quick and easy to complete. The software modules can be controlled from the IEC user program via a standardized, intuitive interface. Every MOVIKIT® software module offers both a conventional variable interface and an object-oriented interface for implementing cutting-edge software architectures.
