Automation Studio Educational Edition Software by Famic Technologies


plc controlling a virtual system in Automation Studio software

PLC Programmable Logic Controller
(Allen Bradley™ AB-500 & AB-5000, Siemens™, LS ELECTRIC, IEC)

The PLC Ladder Logic Libraries allows creating and troubleshooting PLC circuits. It offers a wide array of components from Allen Bradley™ AB-500 & AB-5000, Siemens™, LS ELECTRIC and IEC61131-3. They can be used to control any circuit within Automation Studio™ using sensors, solenoids, lights, switches, and more.

The PLC circuit can be used to control any other technologies included in Automation Studio™ enabling students to better understand the interaction between different technologies. Virtual Systems such as conveyors, traffic lights, elevator, and pick and place are provided so that students can create their logic by triggering the Inputs/Outputs to bring these systems to life!

Users also have access to an illustrated library that includes real looking PLCs so students can actually learn how to wire up the different PLCs. This library includes PLCs from Allen Bradley, Siemens, Eaton, Koyo, LS ELECTRIC, Mitsubishi, Omron, etc. They can write the Ladder Logic and run the simulation to see the inputs and outputs being triggered on the PLC according to their ladder diagram.

Connect to your real devices (PLCs, Arduino, etc.) using OPC communication.
Sequential Function Chart & Structured Text are also available to control systems.
