Virtual Commis­sioning

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.

Virtual commissioning compared to traditional Commissioning workflow


Take advantage of the universal OPC-UA or Beckhoff interface in your virtual commissioning projects

Visual Components Virtual Commissioning with PLC Connectivity
  • 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!
