New software version Simit V10 creates greater simulation flexibility

The picture shows the new software version Simit V10.

The application scope of Simit V10 extends beyond the process industries. Version 10 also brings added benefits for discrete manufacturers using the Simit performance spectrum, which together with the new Simatic Machine Simulator V1.0 creates the basis for isosynchronous coupling between the virtual PLC and simulation model. This enables complete machines to be virtually validated through the synchronous simulation of mechatronic models and behavioral sensor and actuator models, and also PLC applications to be emulated and ultimately also tested. By combining virtual controllers with device and mechanical behavior models, a digital twin of the physical application is created. This twin enables users to identify engineering errors at an early stage and fix them prior to actual commissioning – with all the associated efficiency benefits across every phase of a process or manufacturing plant's life cycle. Ultimately, the same model can also be connected within Simit directly to a real controller for validation of an application using physical hardware.
Simit enables a real-time simulation environment to be created for extensive testing of automation functions and operator training long before actual commissioning takes place. The benefits gained by using Simit-based simulations include improved engineering and automation quality, a shorter time to market, early training for plant operators and the seamless integration of engineering data.
