Rockwell Automation has updated its Studio 5000 Logix Designer software for controls engineers to design machines and process applications faster.

Productivity enhancements in version 33 of the Studio 5000 Logix Designer software include: auto-generated diagnostics for supported devices that reduce programming time and give users access to detailed diagnostic information, preservation of online controller tag values when making offline changes and conducting sequential downloads, and extended tag properties that allow engineers to leverage contextual data to create more descriptive and powerful HMI elements.

When paired with the new Allen-Bradley ControlLogix and CompactLogix process controllers from Rockwell Automation, the latest version of Studio 5000 Logix Designer can also accelerate process projects in key ways.

HART integration allows engineers to connect HART devices just like they do EtherNet/IP devices, and pre-built task models reduce the amount of time spent on project creation and layout and can improve consistency across projects.
