FBxDesigner™ IEC 61131-Compliant Programming Software enables users to configure both continuous and discrete control applications for the FB3000 RTU without adding unnecessary programming complexity.
The standardization and widespread acceptance of the IEC 61131-3 programming environment by most PLC manufacturers allows users to choose the appropriate controller hardware system without needing to learn a new programming language. In addition, the flexibility of the IEC 61131 programming environment allows the basic set of functions to be augmented. Emerson has capitalized on this flexibility to provide users with product-specific, higher-level functions in our FBxDesigner™ software. Users can program the software to maximize the FB3000 RTU’s distinguishing capabilities while strictly adhering to the IEC 61131-3 standards. Operating from a Microsoft® Windows® platform, FBxDesigner™ software offers user-friendly functionality, including zooming, scrolling, customizable toolbars, drag and drop operations, a shortcut manager, and dockable windows. With FBxDesigner software, users have a streamlined process for creating, editing, compiling, debugging and documenting simple to complex process control applications for the FB3000 RTU.
