  3. ST-PCS7SIM - Description

Online-Training - SIMIT in der Prozessautomatisierung (ST-PCS7SIM)

  • In this online course in a virtual classroom you will get to know the software by using the simulation software SIMIT and get an overview of the functions and libraries in the process automation environment.


  • By doing exercises in a virtual training environment and practical examples, you will learn about the design of simulations / simulation models for testing the PCS 7 automation software. The perfect interaction of all components integrated in SIMIT enables you to produce more in the highest quality over the long term and to establish new products on the market much more quickly.

  • On completion of the course you are able to:
    • create your own components and templates
    • to use the possibilities of effective engineering in SIMIT
    • to establish couplings between the simulation in SIMIT and PCS 7 automation systems that are emulated with PLCSIM or a virtual controller.
