Virtual FAT With PLC SIM Advanced

First in the region with virtual FAT with Siemens!

With the SIMATIC S7-PLCSIM Advanced virtual controllers for the simulation of a S7-1500 or ET 200SP CPU are created and used for the comprehensive simulation of functions. Therefore no real controllers are required to test a STEP 7 program.

The virtual controllers can also be tested and validated in the context of a system or machine. The user interface (API) is used to connect the virtual controller to a plant/system or machine simulation (co-simulation).

PLCSIM Advanced With S7-PLCSIM Advanced as independent simulation system, the created user program can be simulated and tested on a virtual controller.

The Runtime API of S7-PLCSIM Advanced provides user interfaces for access to the simulation runtime. These user interfaces offer the following options via a program.

  • Creation of a runtime instance of a virtual controller.
  • Changing the mode of the virtual controller.
  • Exchanging I/O data with a co-simulation.
