Logic Design Inc. Launches New Simulation Suite
Fully integrated software package delivers state-of-the-art simulation of automated control systems and components.

TORONTO, CANADA - Logic Design Inc. a leading developer of electronics, robotics and PLC simulation products, announced today the release of its software suite: LogixSim. This suite combines the power and functionality of Logic Design's world-leading simulation tools in a cost effective, intuitive package.

LogixSim combines four simulators in one, and provides unlimited possibilities for the design, testing, and debugging of control devices and automated equipment as well as circuit schematics and systems. From the simplest control circuits to the most complex, LogixSim has the versatility to suit almost any requirement for real-world simulation. Each simulator in LogixSim has an operating environment or "world". Some, like CircuitLogix, are 2D schematic circuits and diagrams while others such as 3DLab and RoboLogix have single 3D environments including a workbench with shelves, or a robot arm and conveyor system. Multiple operating environments are presented in PLCLogix, which utilizes 12 distinct "worlds" ranging from car washes, to traffic lights, to packaging systems.

According to Tim Mitchell, Managing Director of Logic Design, LogixSim is the only simulation product of its kind. Other simulators provide one, or possibly two types of simulation and all with a limited range of circuit configurations and control capability. "Most commercial simulators are focused on electronics circuit simulation, which has been around for decades and while it is still useful, it is no longer the core requirement for knowledge of electronics and control systems. Instead, what is now required is a comprehensive inter-professional knowledge of electricity, electronics, electro-mechanics, robotics, and PLCs".

Regardless of whether you are a first-year student or an industry professional with many years experience, LogixSim is an extraordinary resource tool for learning new technical concepts and refreshing your knowledge. For educators, LogixSim is a valuable classroom resource for use in computer labs and for home assignments. Courses taught in a range of subjects from basic electronics to programming languages can all benefit from LogixSim's simulation tools. For students, it provides unlimited practice and trial-and-error experimentation and provides a practical "hands-on" method of learning complex devices, equipment and systems.
