Virtual commissioning and operator training with SIMIT

SIMIT Simulation Software

Clever combination: Testing and training of automation projects

Bringing products to the market faster while maintaining high quality requires integrated engineering workflows along with short changeover and start-up times. SIMIT Simulation Platform allows for comprehensive testing of automation applications and provides a realistic training environment for operators – even prior to plant startup. SIMIT creates opportunities for process optimization and know-how retention, leading to reduced commissioning time and significantly shortened time-to-market. The end result: greater efficiency throughout the entire life cycle of your manufacturing or process plant.

SIMIT Virtual Controller

Testing and training performed in a completely virtual environment

Implement testing and training systems of any size without physical controller hardware using the SIMIT Virtual Controller. Virtual controllers for emulating SIMATIC S7-300, S7-400, S7-410, and S7-410 E/SIS controllers are now available.



Hardware platform for real-time simulation via PROFIBUS and PROFINET

The SIMIT Unit hardware interface is completely integrated into the SIMIT portfolio and can be operated via a common user interface. Switching 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.
