Virtual commissioning and operator training with SIMIT

Clever combination: Testing and training of automation projects

Bringing products to the market faster while maintaining the same level of quality requires integrated engineering workflows as well as short changeover and start-up times. The simulation platform SIMIT enables comprehensive tests of automation applications and provides a realistic training environment for operator even before the real startup. This creates opportunities for process optimization and know-how retention which results in reduced commissioning time and significantly shortened time-to-market. Overall this means more efficiency throughout the entire lifecycle of manufacturing and process plants.

SIMIT Simulation Platform

Simulation based Engineering from Virtual Commissioning  to Operator Training

SIMIT Virtual Controller

Test and training performed in a completely virtual environment

SIMIT Virtual Controllers can be used to implement test and training systems of any size without using real hardware. Using the virtual controller, no change in the automation program is required. Signals of the virtual controller I/Os are then exchanged over the Virtual Controller coupling with the simulation models.


Hardware platform for real-time simulation via PROFIBUS and PROFINET

The hardware interface SIMIT Unit is completely integrated into the SIMIT portfolio and can be operated via a common user interface. The switch between hardware- and software-in-the-loop can be accomplished with only a few steps. The connection to a real controller is possible via PROFIBUS, PROFINET, PRODAVE and OPC.
