Simosim for simulation in the engineering enables online accesses and test functions to be executed just as if a real controller was connected. In addition to the debugging capabilities, such as the status program, breakpoints and traces, and including the complete web and OPC UA server functionality, even axes can be simulated. This considerably speeds up the start of production, as it reduces time-consuming troubleshooting and program adaptations on the actual machine. Simosim is also a key component in the end-to-end digital process chain, from the configuration to the cloud-based services.
In software version 5.1 for Simotion, Siemens has added OOPelements for the flexible, library-compatible software structuring of modular machine concepts: Mechanisms for the direct connection of I/O components in the program code or for grouping functionally associated software elements in libraries are now supported.
