FBxDesigner ™ IEC 61131-Compliant Programming Software
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.


  • Fully compliant IEC 61131-3 software that enables users to configure both continuous and discrete control applications for FB3000 RTUs without the complexity of a traditional programming environment.
  • An extensive library of more than 300 basic IEC 61131-3 functions and function blocks common to many IEC 61131-3 based products.
  • An application-specific function block library that contains more than 60 function blocks to fulfill specific process and control applications in oil and gas and water and wastewater.
  • Support for all five languages in the IEC 61131-3 standard, including graphical programming languages (Ladder Diagram, Function Block Diagram and Sequential Function Chart) and text-based languages (Structured Text and Instruction List).
  • Ability to combine the languages to achieve process control.
  • Tested programs containing one or more functions or function blocks can be saved to a user-defined function block library and reused as often as necessary.
  • A comprehensive set of online tools help users test, analyze and troubleshoot programming.
