Simit V10.1 – More openness for even more integrated simulation

Simit V10.1 – More openness for even more integrated simulation
Not only can automation applications be checked in detail through virtual commissioning with Simit; at the same time Simit can provide the system operator or production manager with a realistic training environment even before actual commissioning takes place. Various operations can be simulated dynamically, and can also be stored for subsequent analysis.
Due to the use of standardized interfaces, the system openness provided by Simit ensures that information can be exchanged or integrated even more easily, comprehensively and effectively. Data exchange is standardized on the basis of the OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) communication protocol. In addition, a dedicated interface enables the integration of the Advanced Process Modelling Platform gPROMS developed by Process Systems Enterprise (PSE). As a result of this increased openness, in Version 10.1 models from other simulation tools can also be integrated in the form of Functional Mock-up Units (FMUs), via the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI). The specific optimization of the technical process, including during system operation, is supported by the integration of the gPROMS platform from PSE with Simatic PCS 7. The range of operational uses for the models includes monitoring, soft-sensing, predictive controller and optimization applications.
For a fast-reacting simulation, Simit Version 10.1 offers the option of distributing simulations over various powerful processors. This means that complete machines can be validated virtually in real time, with mechatronic models and behavioral models for actuators and sensors being simulated as well as PLC applications being synchronized, emulated and finally tested. The Simit Unit now also supports the failsafe function for i-Devices on Profinet for time-critical and safety-related areas. The realistic simulation ensures commissioning can be carried out more quickly and with fewer risks.
Version 10.1 of the Simit simulation software supports both the established Simatic PCS 7 process control system and the new web-based Simatic PCS neo control system from Siemens. The latest functions of the Simatic ET200SP HA automation peripherals and the Simatic Compact Field Unit (CFU) can also be simulated. With Simit Version V10.1, Siemens also offers a new licensing concept for the cost-effective emulation of the Simatic S7-300 controller.
