Rockwell Software Studio 5000 Logix Designer Software, Rockwell AutomationThe Rockwell Software Studio 5000 Logix Designer 24 software provides new design capabilities that can dramatically increase automation productivity, improve start-up time and reduce costs throughout a project's life cycle.

Many machine builders and manufacturers struggle to support production changes due to unstructured code that is not easily understood and organized. The new additions in version 24 include an application-centric view of code, enhanced work flows for more efficient re-use of content, and new collaborative tools that make it easier for multiple people to work together.

The Studio 5000 Logix Designer 24 software is used to configure Allen-Bradley Logix5000 controllers for discrete, process, batch, motion, safety and drive control. The version 24 software features a new logical organizer that arranges program code based on the users' applications, rather than how the programmable controller executes. Logical organization of program code can help users identify and troubleshoot code faster for improved downtime recovery.

New library management work flows make it easier to store and re-use intellectual property. Users can simply drag and drop modules of code from the Studio 5000 Logix Designer 24 library into a new project. The new work flows enable design engineers to re-use sections of code, which reduces design time and eases the ability to make future operational changes.

The version 24 software builds on the already strong baseline of multiuser capabilities, which allow many users to work separately and then bring their work back together. This allows automation system design and maintenance teams—who are increasingly global and specialized by function—to more easily collaborate when designing control systems.
