Rockwell Automation claims its Studio 5000 Logix Designer v24 software offers engineers new design capabilities that can increase automation productivity, improve start-up time and reduce costs throughout a project’s life cycle. The new additions include an application-centric view of code, enhanced work flows for more efficient re-use of content and new collaborative tools.
The software features a new logical organiser that arranges program code based on the users’ applications – rather than how the programmable controller executes. New library management work flows help to store and re-use intellectual property. In addition the software supports the Allen-Bradley Kinetix 5500 servo drive with integrated safety to help machine builders reduce development and installation time.
