An online automation system configuration tool, iAutomate is designed to reduce the time associated with configuring and trialing an automation setup. Users can build their own system to meet application or process requirements, or modify an existing system around the Orbitor or Orbitor BenchTrak plate movers, a customizable plate mover. iAutomate currently houses an inventory of more than 100 different instruments. Once chosen, all instruments appear on the main screen, where they can be assembled via drag-and-drop functionality. Assembly can be visualized in 2D or 3D, and a scale model can be inspected from any angle.
