You will be surprised when you install the latest version (v21) of the Rockwell Automation ControlLogix programming software and see you can’t find RSLogix 5000 icon anymore. If you look under the Rockwell Software program folder you will see a new program “Studio 5000”. New icon, splash screen and the Studio 5000 Logix Designer, but in version 21 once you select your project you are ported over to our old familiar friend RSLogix 5000. Studio 5000 is the product. Logix Designer is the first capability of the product.
Logix Designer is RSLogix 5000 with optimal connectivity to Studio 5000s new common infrastructure and services. Studio 5000 is the product and Logix Designer is the first capability of the product. Studio 5000 with Logix Designer is still the core programming software for PlantPAx PAC controllers.
