Updated Rockwell Studio 5000 Software aims to reduce design time

Friday May 04, 2018
May 4, 2018 - Rockwell Automation says engineers can more quickly design, build and commission automation systems using the newly enhanced Rockwell Software Studio 5000 integrated development environment.

The latest software release includes a new user interface that provides a common look across all Studio 5000 applications, and includes updates to help engineers improve productivity from design to deployment. The Studio 5000 Logix Designer application features updates to several programming languages and a structured text editor to help optimize design time, the company explains. The text editor has been updated with various new features, such as collapsible code segments and inline value monitoring to aid with programming and editing. The new Logix tag-based alarm functionality allows engineers to add alarms to structures and manage them in a single environment. The update also includes new drive safety instructions in accordance with IEC 61800-5-2, and motion instructions for expanded kinematic support.

The Studio 5000 Logix Designer application also includes support for the new Allen-Bradley GuardLogix 5580 and Compac GuardLogix 5380 controllers, which Rockwell says helps provide new options for users as they design safety systems and can help reduce overall machine costs. The Studio 5000 View Designer application now includes data logging and trending to help with troubleshooting, and also provides engineers with access to emulation capabilities for virtual commissioning and testing applications. To help jumpstart development, Rockwell Automation now provides a Machine Builder Library and Process Object Library for Studio 5000 Application Code Manager. Both libraries can be downloaded from the Product Compatibility Download Center (PCDC) for no additional cost.
