RSLogix 5000 Product Profile
RSLogix 5000 Enterprise
Series Software
With RSLogix™ 5000 Enterprise Series software, you
need only one software package for sequential,
process, drive, and motion control programming. The
RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series environment offers an
easy-to-use, IEC 61131-6 compliant interface, symbolic
programming with structures and arrays, and an
instruction set that serves many types of applications.
This environment is common to the Allen-Bradley® Logix
platforms: ControlLogix®, FlexLogix™, CompactLogix™,
and SoftLogix5800™, as well as PowerFlex 700S with
DriveLogix™.
What’s New in Version 13:
y new Lite Edition software package
(9324-RLD250xxE) provides relay ladder, function
block diagram, structured text, and sequential
function chart editors for smaller controllers
y support for online editing of structured text and
sequential function chart routines
y ability to create libraries using the relay ladder
partial import/export functionality
y improved defaults for relay ladder and structured
text instructions
y description pass-through, which automates tag
description creation
y logic browser to navigate code
y ability to estimate project size offline
y report generation wizard
y partial printouts for logic editors
y new tag listing with improved formatting uses
less paper
y user-customized toolbars to launch third-party
applications
RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software is available in
English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and
Spanish. Translations include online help, user manuals
in PDF format, and all software menus and dialog boxes.
You can install multiple language versions of RSLogix
5000 software on the same workstation and use the
appropriate version for your system.
Flexible, Easy-to-Use Editors
The software includes language editors for relay ladder, function block diagram, structured text,
and sequential function chart logic. Each language editor is fully-integrated into the software. One
controller project can include multiple routines of each language type.
Use this editor:
To:
y develop traditional PLC applications
relay ladder
y manage motion and servo control needs
y perform messaging and serial communications
y create circuit flow representations of your application
function block diagram y use specialized process and drive control blocks built into the environment
y develop process and drive control loop algorithms
y use a textual-based language to program complex mathematical operations
structured text
y take advantage of the same functions and instructions offered in relay ladder and
function block diagram
y use a highly-visual language to manage program and routine execution
sequential function
y sequence machine states
chart
y more easily program machines with repetitive operations
All four language editors provide the ability to make changes on line with a running controller.
This lets you debug and enhance your programs while maximizing your production productivity.
When you download an application into a controller, RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software
determines whether the controller firmware is compatible. If not, the software helps you locate the
correct firmware and the software updates the controller as part of the download process.
You can easily re-use application code across different Logix platforms by morphing a project. Just
change controller properties of the project and specify the new controller type.
The software can fully upload the program logic for all four programming languages, as well as tag
names, directly from a controller. This simplifies maintenance because you can always obtain the
original source directly from the controller. With structured text, you can also obtain the in-line
descriptions (comments) from a controller.
Product Profile
Robust, Specialized Instruction Set
In addition to standard instructions, the software includes:
y industry-specific instructions for process, drive, and motion applications.
y ASCII instructions to enhance your ability to manipulate, store, and send string data.
y message instructions to simplify sending and receiving data across many different devices.
y sequential function chart components to structure your application.
RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software includes ActiveX® faceplates for the function block
instructions that commonly require operator interface displays. Drop these faceplates into any
ActiveX container, such as RSView ME or RSView SE, to graphically monitor your program.
An optional, built-in autotune utility lets you autotune the PIDE instruction from its ActiveX faceplate,
from its property dialog screen, or from a custom screen in your operator interface application.
Powerful Data Editor
Programs created by RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software use IEC 61131-6 compliant, symbolic
data addressing. Create a tag by assigning a name and defining the data type. Tag names are loaded
with your application into the controller. This provides you with self-documented logic and eliminates
the need for you to memorize the controller’s memory layout. Each tag is stored individually in the
controller, so you can create new tags while the controller is on line and in run mode.
Descriptions that you enter in a custom data type are automatically passed through and made visible
in the tags that use the data type. The pass-through description is then merged/concatenated to the
description from the base tag definition. This automates documentation creation and streamlines the
development process.
You can create:
y tags that are either accessible by a single routine or accessible by all routines within the
controller.
y customized data types by combining multiple data elements into a compound structure.
y arrays of any data type or data structure.
RSLinx® software can access the tag list, either on line in the controller or off line in the software
file and make the tag list available to other software packages such as RSView®32™ via an OLE for
Process Control (OPC) browse component. This reduces development time by avoiding tag
mismatches between related applications.
Integrated Process Control
Take advantage of RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software to address your process applications:
y Use the function block diagram language to create continuous and batch process control loops.
Online editing permits process changes to loops while they are operating.
y Develop logic using an integrated set of process control instructions that are available in function
block diagram and structured text languages.
y The PIDE autotuner simplifies startup by setting gains automatically.
y The ActiveX displays streamline development and maintenance by providing a direct link to control
loops from user interface displays.
y Use sequential function charts with embedded structured text to create simple batch procedures.
Highly-Integrated Motion Capabilities
RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software provides built-in, highly-integrated motion support. A single
hardware and software platform meets your combined motion and programmable controller needs.
The motion configuration wizard leads you through the parameters of a motion axis. While online
with a controller, use the built-in marker test, direction test, and auto-tune features to reduce axis
setup time.
The relay ladder and structured text editors include a series of motion-specific instructions.

Intuitive Programming Environment
The software displays the IEC 61131-6 compliant, multi-tasking, operating system of a Logix
controller as a graphical tree with tasks, programs, and routines. Multiple users can simultaneously
monitor and edit the contents of a running Logix controller.
Drag-and-drop to move instructions, logic, routines, programs, and tasks either within a single
project or between copies of RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software to create project libraries. You
can also move program elements between the RSLogix™ 5 and RSLogix™ 500 software packages.
Quickly access the context menus for common tools by right-clicking over addresses, symbols,
instruction blocks, rungs, or other application elements.
An automatic type-ahead feature works with the instruction set and tag database to speed your data
entry and programming. And RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software includes the familiar
search/replace function you’ve used with RSLogix 5 and RSLogix 500 software.
The software automatically searches for tag descriptions if they are not provided. An alias tag, array
tag, or custom data type leverages the descriptions from its base tag or the data type. With custom
data types, the software concatenates the tag’s root description with the datatype’s member
description. This creates a very specific description, saves you development time, and improves the
resulting documentation.
Superior Diagnostic Capabilities
RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software uses the RSView32 TrendX™ component found in other
Rockwell Software products, such as RSView® Enterprise Series software, to provide graphical, realtime data histograms for diagnostic and monitoring functions. Trend as many as eight separate
values together. Multiple trends can be active simultaneously.
Force values to test your logic. You can:
y set forces on individual bits and entire values.
y monitor forces in the tag monitor for tags, individual bits, or entire values.
y force transitions and disable simultaneous branches in the sequential function chart editor.
y monitor forces in the ladder editor for both bit and block instructions.
Open Access to Project Contents
With RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software, you are free to work with other tools to streamline
your development. You can access various portions of your project by:
y Windows® Clipboard  cut/copy/paste code and information between RSLogix 5000 Enterprise
Series software and other Windows-based tools to create, manipulate, and duplicate your tags,
comments, and logic.
y Import/Export Tag Definitions  the Comma Separated Value (CSV) export provides an easy way
to extract tags for use by other parts of your system as well as providing a way to automate tag
creation and manipulation of comments using third-party tools such as Microsoft® Excel®.
y Full Project Import/Export  this ASCII representation of your controller project provides complete
access to create and manipulate the controller’s configuration outside of RSLogix 5000 Enterprise
Series software. This permits the ability to link code creation directly to business systems and
automate the code generation process.
y Ladder Diagram Rung Partial Import/Export  this XML-based, ASCII file contains user-selected
rungs and the associated rung comments, tags, and datatype definitions. This lets you create
external libraries of code that can be easily imported. During import, you also have the option to
rename tags and modify descriptions so that the code is immediately ready to run.
Protect Your Application
RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software comes with a stand-alone version of the Rockwell Software
security server that offers multiple-user, multiple-level password protection to your controller both
online and offline. You assign:
y full controller access
y read only access
y code read and data read/write access
RSLogix 5000 Enterprise Series software also includes source protection functionality that offers
protection for individual routines. You can restrict individual routines from viewing, editing, printing,
and exporting.
