Courtesy: WagoWago's e!Cockpit automation engineering suite of tools is designed to shorten development time for automation projects by bringing all tasks including hardware configuration, programming, simulation and diagnostics, and final commissioning into a single platform. The drag-and-drop interface allows complex automation tasks to be engineered without the need for extensive training. By using one single platform from end to end, machines can be brought online faster leading to increased productivity. By merging mechanical, electrical and software components into the same system, e!Cockpit offers shorter development cycles without compromising on functionality. 

End-to-end data configuration and storage means the platform provides solutions at every step of the installation process. In addition, interfaces for master data exchange with external electrical and mechanical engineering software simplify complex data transmission, while largely eliminating error-prone double inputs. The tool supports various network protocols including Modbus, Profibus, CAN and CANopen. Data connections between control systems and fieldbus couplers can be configured with just a few clicks. The graphical interface provides users with an understandable overview of networks including networks comprised of mixed fieldbus connections. The software is continuously supported by Wago with automatic online upgrades.
