First steps with SIMIT Simulation and SIMATIC PCS 7

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
SIMIT is a simulation platform for virtual commissioning of the user software in automation systems. In doing so, SIMIT places a wide spectrum of the plant simulation at your disposal. Starting with simulation of input and output signals, through simulation of field equipment, to modeling of the overall process.

Based on the PCS 7 Getting Started, you will learn the first steps for simulating a process engineering system with SIMIT simulation.




Advantages of the simulation platform at a glance

  • developing and testing the automation software before commissioning
  • emulation of signal, device and process level
  • graphical user interface for an easy useage
  • high quality assurance
  • increasing cost efficiency
  • using as operator training system
  • integrated Virtual Controller V9.0 with SIMIT Simulation V9.0
