The new release provides an integrated development environment using the spectrum of automation components - PLCs and safety PLCs, motion controllers, drives, robots and HMIs - reducing software complexity and cutting time to market and cost of ownership. New features include extended data exchange capabilities with electrical planning and engineering software, with a new bi-directional interface to the EPLAN Electric P8. Electrical automation and PLC design data may be imported, modified and transferred back to the electrical CAD environment, eliminating any need to manually enter data and ensuring synchronization of signal identification between the two software environments. A comparison function allows engineers to see what might have changed since they last looked at a project, and profiles of previous development tool versions can be used for compatibility. Other features include simplified drop-down menus, drag-and-drop features on the object tree, an improved device repository with search and filter functions, a list editor for AC500 I/O mapping, and a re-worked help system.
