LogixPro 500 PLC Simulator

A complete stand-alone PLC training system on CD covering Allen-Bradley's (Rockwell) RSLogix 500 without the expense of a PLC.

What is the LogixPro 500 PLC Simulator?

It's a PLC Editor/Emulator which mimics Allen-Bradley's (Rockwell) RSLogix 500 - a complete stand-alone PLC training system on CD without the expense of a PLC.

LogixPro 500 is the ideal tool for learning the fundamentals of ladder logic programming. The look, feel and operation of LogixPro's ladder rung editor so closely mimics Rockwell's world renown PLC editing software, that many need a second look to be sure whose editor they're using.

Of course the give-away is the window containing one of the ProSim-II Simulations. This is where LogixPro really out-shines typical PLC training setups employing a PLC connected to a handful of switches and lights.

By graphically simulating process equipment such as conveyors, bottling plants, etc. in software, the synchronous and interactive nature of real industrial processes, presents the student with a far more realistic and challenging programming experience.

What is ProSim-II?

ProSim-II Simulations is an interactive educational tool, developed to assist students in the acquisition of the programming skills used in the control of process oriented equipment and systems. Although designed primarily for use with Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), the flexible interface of the ProSim package readily allows it to be used with any computer programming language which supports ActiveX objects in a MS Windows environment.

Typical industrial processes such as material transfer operations using a conveyor or batch mixing tanks complete with pumps and metering are graphically displayed on the screen. The displayed processes are fully animated and when used with a PLC or PLC emulator, will respond to the signals of the PLC in the same manner that actual process equipment and sensors would respond.

For example, a properly addressed PLC output can be used to start a pump on a mixing tank. Once started, visual indication of the pump's rotation and fluid flow will appear on the computer screen. In addition, a digital signal representative of fluid flow would be transferred back as an input to the PLC program.
