This edition will help users share schematics within their organization, with clients or anyone who doesn’t possess an Automation Studio™ license. It can display schematics for any technology, plotter curves from the original project as well as various reports.
The Embedding Component allows to create nested structures with different levels of hierarchy. This helps to simplify circuit representation by compacting a set of components into a single symbol. It is integrated in the Hydraulic, Pneumatic and Block Diagram Libraries.
The new Electrotechnical Protection Builder offers more configuration possibilities and allows to edit and simulate the protection’s characteristic curves. Other properties have been added, including control variables and advanced management of part numbers.
Interactive exercises are available for hydraulics, pneumatics and electrical technologies. Each of them include one schematic that is automatically simulated and animated in order to graphically show the behaviour of the function represented.
By selecting the following feature, Automation Studio™ automatically identifies and generates a list of all updates available for manufacturers and custom catalogue components present in the project. Users can then decide for each component if they wish to update it.
The calculation sheets can be transferred and reused from one project to another by using the added transfer function towards the Enterprise Standards.
Graphical environment for component and system modeling using predefined function blocks.
It can also be used for creating and testing complete control loops.
Intuitive tools to visualize and analyze simulation behaviours using 2D or 3D plotters. Compare results from different plotters throughout simulation.
New simulation models available for accessories, fittings in lines, pumps, inductors, capacitors and pneumatic brakes.
New search filter and improved navigation to quickly locate components. Manage standards for each technology, including new Hydraulic/Pneumatic ISO Standards 1219-1 (2012).
Easily build, manage and share a dictionary with all the project translated terms in a single database. All texts in projects are standardized to provide a more efficient communication.
Simply drag & drop components on any layer of the manager, filter, sort and order different layers. Layer management is also available for title blocks.
Input parameter in the sizing sheets can now be defined using curves (in function of time). New energy calculations are now possible.
Generate an Allen-Bradley Ladder Logic code from the SFC module of Automation Studio™ that can be transferred to the PLC.
Standards specific to each technology and Installation/Circuit configuration can be accessed directly from the ribbon bar. Additional tooltips commands are also present in the ribbon bar.
Easily show & hide all component’s satellites or references from the ribbon bar. Modify the function of a line belonging to an assembly and identify components with associated satellites.
New favorite feature displays only important properties of a selected component. Default favorite properties can be modified by the user for components.
Component properties now include descriptive images displaying contextual properties specific to a selected component model.
