Virtual Engineer is Parker's state-of-the-art motion system design tool that allows users to size, select and compare motion solutions based on performance, cost, form and many other factors. This section of the Parker Electromechanical Knowledgebase has been set aside for topics related to Virtual Engineer. To get started, use the navigation pane on your left to find answers to common questions (e.g. "How do I save my project in Virtual Engineer?" or "How do I select what type of actuator I want to use"). For mobile users, the navigation pane will appear above this article (scroll up if you do not see it).
Alternatively, the search tool near the top of the page is another good way to find information quickly. The search tool will also search the rest of the Electromechanical Knowledgebase and can return results related to actuators, motors, drives, controllers and HMIs.
If you are not able to find the answer to your question here, you can reach the Parker Electromechanical and Drives Applications Engineering and Customer Service departments at 1-800-358-9060. Applications Engineering can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and Customer Service can be reached at email@example.com. Additionally, Virtual Engineer has a built-in chat feature that allows you to quickly connect with a Parker Applications Engineer for advice and assistance.
