Rockwell Automation announces Studio 5000 Application Code Manager application

June 28, 2018 — Rockwell Automation released new application content to help OEMs and process skid manufacturers. The latest content includes device objects and two machine builder code libraries, one for converting, print and web (CPW) machines and one for process skids. This release complements the already available content for packaging applications.

Machine builder libraries provide standardized, application-specific code that can help engineers design CPW machines and process skids. The libraries also include application-specific features. For example, the process-skid library includes a state machine engine, which engineers can use to develop custom behaviors that match the features of their specific skids.

The device objects are code and visualization objects that provide a common interface for connecting a specific device to other library objects in a machine. Engineers can add the object for a new type of device instead of rewriting the machine’s entire engineering cycle to accommodate the change. The first set of device objects are for starter, drive and motion devices. They also provide faceplates for the line of Allen-Bradley PanelView 5000 operator interfaces.
 
The new application content is available as a free download from the Rockwell Automation Product Compatibility Download Center (PCDC). Once downloaded, users import the content into the Studio 5000 Application Code Manager application. 

The Studio 5000 Application Code Manager application provides a single place for engineers to access the content, build their applications and even test applications before they build a cabinet. Engineers can also create and manage their own library objects within Application Code Manager for reuse on other projects.
