Product Exclusive: B&R Automation Studio meets programming goals faster

B&R Automation Studio 3.0 enables faster control software programming using a mechatronic approach and object-oriented programming, using C++ along with IEC 61131-3 programming languages.

B+R Automation Studio 3.0 (version AS 3.0.91) offers a mechatronic approach and object-oriented programming (OOP) to accelerate product development. It is not uncommon for software projects to suffer delays during the development process. One reason is that the software used is simply too complex and inflexible. Nevertheless, the development process can be accelerated considerably when employing an object-oriented approach, according to B+R Industrial Automation.

Viewing the entire development process holistically is critically important when developing modern machine solutions. For this to work in practice, however, developers must have the right tools throughout the product development lifecycle. With its integrated simulation environment, open interfaces, and seamless integration of C++, Automation Studio is the perfect platform for supporting mechatronic product development, the company said.

Using this software, the development team has the right tools to master any task, starting with the specification of requirements and continuing through the object-oriented analysis, design and simulation of the machine, all the way up to commissioning. Those capabilities result in a more dynamic development process across the board, reducing overall development times, while increasing quality of the software programming.
