This online training provides you with a summary of the functions and libraries of the simulation software SIMIT in the field of process automation.
By doing exercises in a virtual training environment, 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 enhance productivity in the highest quality permanently and to establish new products on the market considerably faster.
On completion of the course, you are able to:
create own ccomponents and templates
to use the available features for efficient engineeering in SIMIT
to establish ccouplings between the simulation in SIMIt and automation systems in PCS 7, which are emulated by PLCSIM or the Virtual Controller.
