Features include an application-centric view of code, enhanced work flows for more efficient re-use of content, and collaborative tools that make it easier for multiple people to work together. The Studio 5000 Logix Designer v24 software is used to configure Allen-Bradley Logix5000 controllers for discrete, process, batch, motion, safety and drive control.

The Studio 5000 Logix Designer v24 software features a logical organizer that arranges program code based on the users’ applications instead of how the programmable controller executes. The library management work flows are designed to ease the ability to store and re-use intellectual property. Users can simply drag and drop modules of code from the Studio 5000 Logix Designer v24 library into a new project.

In addition, the Studio 5000 Logix Designer v24 software supports the Allen-Bradley Kinetix 5500 servo drive with integrated safety to help machine builders reduce development and installation time. Additionally, the Allen-Bradley Dynamix 1444 integrated condition-monitoring system allows manufacturers to leverage the Rockwell Automation Integrated Architecture system, rather than an isolated condition-monitoring device.
