Fixed unlocking properties for some of the manufacturers products used in a schematic.
Issue with PDF export was fixed.
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.
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.
Significantly improved performance specifically when opening and closing large projects.
The Mechanical links allows to easily connect different technologies as electrical and fluid power.
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.
You may now display either all of the connection port names or only the desired one when inserting components from the main library.
A new option exists to display the different types of ports on the components: Mechanical, Electrical and Fluids.
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.
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.
