Studio 5000 Logix Emulate

Increase design productivity, reduce risk and decrease overall project costs with Studio 5000® Logix Emulate™ software. It is at the core of the Studio 5000® virtual design environment, which enables machine prototyping, throughput analysis, virtual commissioning and operator training solutions (OTS). Studio 5000 Logix Emulate provides the ability to validate, test and optimize application code independent of physical hardware. New interface capabilities provide connectivity to third-party simulation and Operator Training Systems allowing users to simulate their entire process and train teams in a safe, virtual environment.

What’s New

Version 32.00.00

Studio 5000 Logix Emulate now supports powerful operator training capabilities by enabling the emulated control system to interface with high fidelity process simulators. This allows more robust system testing to verify system applications prior to commissioning while creating a safe classroom environment for operators to train. Studio 5000 Logix Emulate for Operator Training provides the following functionality:

  • Snapshot/Restore for situational based training
  • Halt/Resume the process to verify application code
  • Read/Write tag values to inject simulated process control dynamics into the system to validate your application

Studio 5000 Logix Emulate for Operator Training enables you to leverage the third-party Operator Training System of your choice. Rockwell Automation is partnering with many vendors to provide out-of-the-box integration capabilities with Studio 5000 Logix Emulate for Operator Training. Current vendors that have partnered with Rockwell Automation include:


Simulate discrete Input/Output (I/O) and Logix 5000™ based controllers.

Simplify troubleshooting by utilizing advanced debugging to support code validation and virtual commissioning.

Easily adjust execution speeds to identify potential issues long before they are found in a production system.

Integrate into high fidelity process simulation systems for operator and situational based training.
