Increase your flexibility and work in an open, virtual, and networked manner
With a digital workflow, a virtual model of machines and plants can be used to simulate and test every aspect before actually building the real thing. This “digital twin” is also connected to operational IT and the cloud for even more flexibility and ultimately resulting in higher quality products.
Scalable simulation as required
Simulating the entire plant, including the controller and HMI, and evaluating it based on a virtual model reduces local commissioning time thanks to PLCSIM Advanced, the controller’s digital twin.
