About Studio 5000 Logix Designer
Studio 5000 Logix Designer, the progression of RSLogix 5000 software, delivers standardized framework for discrete, process, batch, motion, safety and drive-based systems, helping save programming time.
Studio 5000 Logix Designer is the one application to configure, program and maintain the entire Allen-Bradley Logix 5000 family of controller’s products and related devices. Its intuitive programming environment allows users to work collaboratively to design and maintain their systems.
Some of the enhancements that the latest Studio 5000 software release can deliver include:
Enhanced Defense-in-Depth Security: The Studio 5000 software will allow companies to use CIP Security to better protect their industrial communications with authenticity, integrity and confidentiality. The FactoryTalk Policy Manager tool, available in early 2019, will allow administrators to centrally manage secure communications policies within the Studio 5000 environment in compatible hardware. This will allow a CIP securable device to defend itself against a network or communications attack.
Enhanced Usability: New support for 64-bit math in the Studio 5000 software can help engineers be more precise in their calculations and, therefore, their applications. New enhancements to Logix tag-based alarms, such as new instructions and greater alarm visibility, can also help end users optimize productivity by more quickly identifying and troubleshooting problems during production.
Library-Based Time Savings: New library links in the Studio 5000 Application Code Manager tool allow for the auto-creation of parent-child objects in design projects. For example, an engineer can use this feature to quickly create a tank and its associated valves all at once, instead of creating all tank and valve objects individually. Library artifacts also allow engineers to add more content to library objects, such as user documentation. This can help machine designers create more efficient and consistent projects.
Expanded integration of the Application Code Manager tool, allowing engineers to access it from third-party design software, provides further time savings.
