This version includes:
The Sequence Diagram is a visual intuitive tool that allows you to create operation sequences quickly without needing a specific control language or an electrical control circuit.
This function fulfills the training and technical publication requirements. It allows adding views from all different technologies into a single document. For example, it is possible to embed into a single page, a partial view of a hydraulic circuit, a 3D view and a partial view of a GRAFCET, etc.
Additional simulation paces
New, up to 200ms, simulation steps are available providing lighter computing demands during simulation. This feature is particularly useful for large projects.
Completely redesigned the document’s BOM (bill of materials). The new version brings great flexibility in customizing the displayed information as well as its appearance. You can also now edit components’ properties directly from the BOM.
Following ISO 1219-2’s recommendation, you can now subdivide any system into functional groups. You can then efficiently design, simulate, validate and visualize your system function-by-function and quickly compare the different options.
Optimisation in loading, saving and closing projects.
Significantly improved performance specifically when opening and closing large projects.
The Mechanical links allows to easily connect different technologies as electrical and fluid power.
Project components update
Automation Studio™ 6.4 will identify improved components. Depending on the type of improvement, you can update the project’s components either manually or automatically.
Visibility option for connection port names
You may now display either all of the connection port names or only the desired one when inserting components from the main library.
Display of mechanical ports
A new option exists to display the different types of ports on the components: Mechanical, Electrical and Fluids.
Print curent view
Implemented the option to print the current view.
The mechanical links allow for an easy connection between components from different technologies, such as electrical and fluid power.
New language interface
Automation Studio’s interface is now available in Russian.
Added the option to manage the rotodynamic in order to support the centrifugal pump models.
The simulation of new compressible fluids such as azote, hydrogen, helium, methane and propane are now available in the Pneumatics Workshop.
Volume in pneumatic lines
Implemented the option to account for volumes in compressible fluid pipes. This increases the propagation precision of the working pressure.
Mechanics on electrotechnical components
Electrotechnical asynchronous machines, stepper motors, permanent magnet DC motors are now equipped with mechanical connection ports. Position and speed sensors, as well as shafts and mechanical links, can be easily connected to machines facilitating controls and linking to other modules.
The Electrotechnical Module is now equipped with a new induction motor and a permanent magnet DC motor.
All components needed for automotive project development are now grouped into a specific library, which includes the electrotechnical components, under SAE standard.
Ladder Diagram LSIS
Implementation of the new Ladder diagram module based on LSIS PLC specifications.
