  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
The trial download of SIMATIC S7-PLCSIM Advanced V3.0 is available now.

With SIMATIC S7-PLCSIM Advanced, virtual controllers can be created for simulating S7-1500 and ET 200SP controllers, and used for extensive simulation of functions.
Additionally, the virtual controllers can also be tested and validated in the context of a plant/machine. An extensive API is available for connecting to plant/machine simulations.

Highlights of SIMATIC S7-PLCSIM Advanced V3.0

  • S7 PLCSIM Advanced V3.0 now also supports the simulation of applications that have been created with the ODK Development Package

Loading ODK projects is possible without changes to the STEP 7 program and the hardware configuration.
This extends the list of supported CPU types:

  • CPU 1518(F)-4 PN/DP ODK
  • CPU 1518(F)-4 PN/DP MFP

The supported function libraries for the real-time environment are:

  • CPU function library:
    • Original Shared Object, SO file, such as is also used for the hardware CPUs.
  • S7 PLCSIM Advanced function library (Windows Sync):
    • A 32-bit Windows DLL for ODK Runtime
    • A 64-bit Windows DLL for ODK Runtime

New API functions:
  • RunAutodiscover()
  • The API was extended with the option to search for distributed runtimes in the network, which further improves the applicability in complex test scenarios.

  • CleanupStoragePath()
  • The API now also supports the deletion of virtual memory cards (local and remote) in order to free up memory space in automated test scenarios, for example.
