    SIMATIC S7-1500 S7-PLCSIM Advanced

    Document: S7-PLCSIM Advanced (12/2017, English)
    Type of topic: Fact

    Technology modules

    PLCSIM Advanced simulates the real CPU, but not configured, connected technology modules or other I/O devices.

    It is possible to download a project with technology modules for operation of motion control. However, the built-in logic of the technology modules is not part of the simulation, which is why the associated Motion Control instructions are not supported.

    Additional information

    For more information on Motion Control, refer to the following manuals:
