The LogixSim includes CircuitLogix, 3DLab, PLCLogix 5000 and RoboLogix simulation tools that can be used to design, program, install and troubleshoot industrial electronic, robotics and PLC equipment.
CircuitLogix is a powerful and easy to use 2D and 3D simulator. The 3DLab simulation software is intended to provide the fundamentals of electronics using "real-world" components.The CircuitLogix simulator contains over 10,000 devices and circuits and is capable of performing analog, digital, and mixed-mode simulation. This simulation software converts your computer into a virtual Electronics lab.
3DLab Circuit Simulation
The 3DLab simulator is introduced early into the content of the program to help students visualize basic electronic circuits and to begin to interact directly with them, just like in a real lab. Animations of the lab simulations supplement the working labs to create a multimedia environment that is very engaging and allows students to virtually step into the laboratory and circuit they are working on.
CircuitLogix Circuit Simulation
CircuitLogix is a powerful, yet easy to use schematic capture and circuit simulation tool which includes over 4,000 device models, and eight virtual instruments. The schematic capabilities enable students to draw any electronics circuit and create a netlist for PCB design tools and autorouters. Students can easily build an analog or digital circuit schematic, attach test instruments and run the simulator to see how the circuit functions. It can perform a live, free running simulation of the digital portion of a circuit and also perform analog and mixed analog/digital simulations based on Berkeley SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) and XSPICE.
Using CircuitLogix, students have the freedom to try all the "what-if" scenarios they can imagine - changing parts or component values, then re-running the simulations to see how changes affect the circuits operations and performance.
PLCLogix 5000 Simulation
PLCLogix 5000, is the state-of-the-art simulator that emulates the operation of a ControlLogix controller and the Rockwell RSLogix 5000 software providing comprehensive coverage of tag-based PLC programming. With the simulator students can develop and practice their programming skills and learn the operation of tag-based PLC in a realistic simulated environment. The PLCLogix 5000 software also enables students to design, test and troubleshoot PLC ladder logic circuits using a tag-based format.
The simulation software, RoboLogix, is designed to emulate real-world robotics applications and employs the basic principles common to the vast majority of robots currently in use in the automation industry including Cartesian and SCARA designs. This sophisticated simulator helps students learn the practical side of programming industrial robots in a safe environment. It uses a teach pedant and very common instruction set that may be familiar to those who have already worked on Fanuc and Motoman systems. The 3D simulated training environments included in the program are pick and place, spray painting, conveyor/palletizing and welding applications.
