Setting the Standard in PLC Hands-On Training
What is the LogixPro 500 PLC Simulator?
Combine our ProSim-II programmable
process simulations with a PLC Editor/Emulator which mimics Allen-Bradley's (Rockwell)
RSLogix 500, and you have LogixPro 500; a complete stand-alone PLC training system 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 our
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.
Obtaining LogixPro 500
The full version of our LogixPro 500 Simulator is available for download and free evaluation.
What this means is that you can download and try out LogixPro 500 in a 15 day
Trial Evaluation mode, and make up your own mind as to whether it's the most advanced
PLC Simulator and best training value on the market today. While in the Trial mode
of operation, LogixPro print and file save capability are disabled, and your are limited to
the use of the I/O, Door, and Silo simulations. Even with these limitations you'll still find
there's no lack of fun or challenge when creating your own programming solutions for LogixPro's
life like process simulations.
Whether you're an instructor assigned to teach RSLogix, a Student studying PLCs, or
you're just plain interested in learning what Allen-Bradley's RSLogix is all about,
then you owe it to yourself to give LogixPro 500 a try! ... Take a look at the growing list of
and see what they have to say.
What does LogixPro 500 cost?
LogixPro was developed by educators who wished to offer students the ability to hone their PLC programming
skills,, when,, and where they pleased... With this in mind, we currently offer LogixPro 500 configured for single computer
operation, at the educational price of $35 (US funds) per copy/license..
We're convinced that you're going to find LogixPro to be one of today's great training values, and as a registered owner;
you'll also benefit from 12 months of free software updates, and technical support.
DownLoading the LogixPro 500 Simulator ......
LogixPro 500 makes significant use of graphics, but typically clicks along
at a good rate on any reasonably modern Win95 through Win8 system. A minimum display
setting of 800x600 is best, and Windows' default small font setting is required. If you
don't have sound, LogixPro will still operate, but you will miss out on some of the fun.
The Trial Evaluation Mode of operation is primarily intended for testing and
evaluation. Keep in mind, that LogixPro has been designed to augment and enhance
PLC training programs, not replace them. What LogixPro does do however; is it
eliminates the dependency on having a PLC, RSLogix, and a host of electrical components
in order to conduct State of the Art PLC training.
For those unfamiliar with RSLogix, we've included a sample program file for the
Silo Simulation to get you started. When you have LogixPro running
select the Silo Simulation, then click Load in the File Menu and select
the file "silo.rsl" which is in the LogixPro directory. Once it is loaded and you
can see the ladder rung program, you can then "GoOnline" and "DownLoad" the program
to the PLC (emulator). At this point you can place the PLC into the "RUN" mode.
If all goes well, just clicking on the silo simulations START push-button should get
the whole process going. To make changes to your program, just place the PLC into
the "PGM" mode to enable editing, and once complete, just "Download" again to the
PLC before attempting to "RUN" again.
For additional help with RSLogix addressing or instructions, go to the
LogixPro .... Student Exercises and Documentation page located on this site.
Also remember to try clicking on rungs, instructions etc with your right mouse button,
to find those popup editing menus etc. that have made RSLogix so popular.
