Studio 5000 Software Update Optimizes Productivity from Rockwell Automation

Studio 5000 Software Release Optimises Productivity and Reduces Designstudio-5000.jpg Time

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, modern look across all Studio 5000 applications, and includes updates to help engineers improve productivity from design to deployment. 

The Studio 5000 Logix Designer application now includes updates to several programming languages and a modernised structured text editor to help optimise design time. The text editor has been updated with many new features, such as collapsible code segments and inline value monitoring, for more productive programming and editing.

“The modified structured text editor improves ease of use for programmers at different skill levels,” said Andy Stump, business manager, Rockwell Automation. “Power users currently using structured text programming and new engineers who are unfamiliar with it will both be comfortable using the modernised editor.”

The new Logix tag-based alarm functionality allows engineers to easily add alarms to structures and manage them in a single environment, which helps save time by avoiding the need for programming. The update also includes new drive safety instructions in accordance with IEC 61800-5-2, and motion instructions for expanded kinematic support. In addition, the modern user interface includes multi-monitor support and tabbed views to help improve usability and reduce design time.

The Studio 5000 Logix Designer application also includes support for the new Allen-Bradley GuardLogix 5580 and Compact GuardLogix 5380 controllers. This provides new high-performance options for users as they design safety systems and can help reduce overall machine costs.
