Imagine the Possibilities
Want to change what’s possible for your business? Build, test and prove machine designs digitally instead of physically. With Studio 5000 design environment, you can add Studio 5000 Simulation Interface and connect third-party simulation software to a Studio 5000 Logix program or fine-tune a model that’s already in production.
Design by Using a Model
Do you wish you had a model of your application to test you logic with? Now you can with Studio 5000 Simulation Interface. Connect a Studio 5000 Logix program to a simulation of your application. Spot an issue? This is not a problem. You’ll see first hand how it works before installation. Directly from your PC, you can run a simulation and programmable logic controller program (through an emulator or hardware controller). Studio 5000 Simulation Interface works with simulation tools to provide more flexible design choices, earlier insight and experimentation options. Use with ANSYS simulation-based digital twin, integrate with MATLAB and Simulink or connect ROM exports from simulation tools like MapleSIM.
Employ a Model-in-the-loop Technique
Even in a production environment, a model can help. Is a specific value difficult to measure? Model it based on real production inputs and Studio 5000 Simulation Interface anticipates changes before production. Enable predictive maintenance or optimization by comparing the model to the actual production. Use Studio 5000 Simulation Interface to run a reduced model at the edge allowing simulation and logic to run on the plant floor next to the real production system. Now you have both operational and simulation data to compare and spot trends, weak spots and opportunities for optimization.
