Online training: SIMIT for Process Automation (ST-PCS7SIM)

  • This course provides you a summary of the functions and libraries of the simulation software SIMIT. By practical exercises you will learn about the design of simulations / simulation models for testing the PCS 7 automation software. The perfect interplay of all components integrated in SIMIT enables you to produce more in the highest quality in a durable way and to establish new products on the market considerably faster.


  • On completion of the course, you are able to:
    • create own components and templates
    • to use the available features for efficient engineering in SIMIT
    • to establish couplings between the simulation in SIMIT and automation systems in PCS7, which are emulated by PLCSIM or the Virtual Controller.
