Connect simulations with your control system and validate before physical execution
Commissioning always happens at the end of a traditional machine building workflow. The problem is that it is never entirely clear when this phase will be able to start after all the others. Virtual Commissioning is a very good example of the manufacturing world evolving. It is a great solution to commission your system virtually while it’s still being assembled and set-up.
ESSENTIALS & PROFESSIONAL
Take advantage of the universal OPC-UA or Beckhoff interface in your virtual commissioning projects
- Test and validate the functionality of your digital model with any PLC brands compatible with OPC-UA or connect it to TwinCAT directly.
- Commission your PLC program before the machine hardware is ready. You’ll save precious time when programming certain types of machine.
- Transfer data in & out of your model to feed any EMS, Cloud interface etc. Your simulation model has to be industry 4.0 compliant!
Access improved commissioning capabilities to connect digital models to physical and virtual vendor-specific controllers.
