Simit offers various automatic modeling functions for simple, rapid simulation modeling. Simulation models and components can be automatically generated, for instance with the aid of template-based imported data. As a result of automatic modeling, practically fault-free simulations can quickly be generated. At the same time, the models and components are automatically parameterized, substantially reducing the outlay of time and costs. A new feature of Simit 9.1 is the ability to perform bulk engineering using spreadsheet calculation. Depending on the selected hierarchy level, it is possible to export the data to Excel. The Simit import wizard enables automatic simulation modeling based on the respective templates.
The new Chem Basic Library is another new addition to Simit. It enables a rapid entry into project engineering using Simit by making available component types to the user, in particular for the simulation of pipeline networks in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry.
Simit Simulation Platform supports different communication interfaces and standards for extended data exchange between simulation and automation environments. Simit can use these to interact with other software applications or programs such as simulation software, or to exchange data with hardware controllers from different manufacturers. Version 9.1 of Simit now also supports the open communication standard OPC UA Client.
To improve efficiency, openness and flexibility, Simit 9.1 supports the current Simatic PCS 7 V9.0, Route Control for engineering, control and diagnostics of material transport, and Safety Matrix, the management tool for every phase of the safety lifecycle. The virtual controller now also simulates the new CPU 410E, the entry CPU for small applications.
The Simit Unit also supports the distributed I/O system Simatic ET 200SP HA, Simatic Compact Field Unit (CFU), R1 Redundancy and PROFINET Process Alarm. Simit Unit documentation is available in XML format and can be simply and rapidly imported from 3rd party engineering tools. From Version Simit 9.1 onwards, Windows Server 2016 is also supported.
