What Is RSLogix?

RSLogix™ 5000 integrates with the Simulink® modeling environment, enabling you to design and implement a control system on Allen-Bradley® ControlLogix controllers. With Simulink, you can model and simulate a controller, and generate IEC 61131 structured text for import into RSLogix 5000.

Simulink and RSLogix 5000 integration lets you:

  • Model and simulate your control system using Simulink models and Stateflow® charts
  • Detect design errors early and reduce physical prototyping time and cost
  • Generate IEC 61131 structured text from the same control algorithm model (using Simulink PLC Coder™ targeted for RSLogix)
  • Download the structured text as an Add-On Instruction (AOI) into RSLogix (using Simulink PLC Coder)

You can then work within RSLogix to deploy the control application on your Allen-Bradley ControlLogix controller.
