Plan, connect, move – as easy as 1, 2, 3

With the MOVI-C® modular automation system, everything comes from a single source. Hardware and software are a well-oiled team. The software takes care of the engineering – planning your application.

Using the hardware reduces the complexity, installation space and costs – all you have to do is connect our components, and they will link via plug-and-play, including to each other. With configurable devices and end-to-end control technology, we reduce the number of device variants without losing any functions – they include everything from safety to robotics, maintaining the full range of movements that can be achieved.

Simplicity for the sake of user-friendliness is the core product promise of the MOVI-C® modular automation system. The aim is to make complex, high-performance automation and drive technology simple enough for you to install it effortlessly, operate it intuitively and monitor it easily.
