Update Reduces Build Time, Enhances Security

An update for Rockwell's Studio 5000 design software platform offers a number of new integration and compatibility enhancements.


Rockwell Automation (Milwaukee, WI) offers the latest update to their Studio 5000 design software platform. Features include:

  • CIP Security support to protect industrial communications.
  • An AutomationML open data exchange that allows the application to exchange data with other engineering tools.
  • A new Simulation Interface that uses the Functional Mock-Up Interface standard to allow data exchange with modeling software in virtually testing machines.
  • New support for 64-bit math in the software will allow engineers to be more precise in their calculations.
  • Logix tag-based alarms for new instructions and alarm visibility for faster troubleshooting.
  • New library links allow for the auto-creation of parent-child objects in design projects, linking complimentary systems or components. Library artifacts also allow engineers to add more content to library objects, such as user documentation.
  • Expanded integration of the Application Code Manager tool allows for access from third-party design software.
