Equator™ software for the shop floor operator, programming engineer and automation integrator.
Easy operation, easy programming
Equator systems are available with two levels of software, a programmable version for production engineers to create programs and, at a lower price, a shop floor system which allows those programs to be executed but prevents operators from making modifications. Programming can be done with either Renishaw MODUS™ or Renishaw INTUO™ software depending on the type of parts and the production requirements.
Shop floor operators select and run programs using the user-friendly Renishaw Organiser front-end software, included on all Equator systems. Equator has various reporting options, including simple pass/fail, a more detailed view in Process Monitor, or automatic data capture for updating machine tool offsets. Automated cells can be easily configured with EZ-IO automation software.
The licence of an Equator controller is controlled using dongles, which makes it possible to upgrade a shop floor system to a programmable system. This provides flexibility to production engineers who need to activate full programming functionality on the shop floor, but also need to retain control over daily operations.
