Abstract

A Modular Process Simulator can replace a vast number of expensive systems or function models used to simulate, to project and to train the programming of programmable logical controller (PLC) systems, graphically and practically. The simulation of physical processes reduces the costs and the amount of time needed for deploying the system. Different types of processes are simulated and associated with functional masks for different types of applications and with different complexity factors in order to develop algorithms for practical work in different areas and implement them onto the PLC unit. The Modular Process Simulator uses a simulation block for all the applications, having different replaceable masks according to the desired application as well as a PC program simulator.
