Siemens Answers with SIMOTION SCOUT Motion Control
The SCOUT motion control software system provides a wide variety of preprogrammed functions or you can create your own. This requires powerful tools, which are easy to use while providing optimum support for the required engineering steps.
SCOUT motion control software is the engineering environment for SIMOTION motion control applications. As a component of Totally Integrated Automation, SCOUT is integrated in the SIMATIC landscape.
SCOUT offers the following advantages:
Comprehensive, function-based view of your automation task
Centralized data and program administration, even in distributed systems
Function-oriented, technological project structure with filterable views
Object-oriented environment for highly structured programming
The spectrum of SIMOTION applications ranges from a simple, single-axis application to sophisticated multi-axis machines. SCOUT therefore provides customer-tailored views for each task and can be supplemented with additional tools (for example, a tool for the graphics-based generation of cams).
