SIMIT in Discrete Automation Technology for Beginners (DI-SIMITFA) (DI-SIMITFA)

  • • SIMIT enables the comprehensive simulation of machine and plant behavior for virtual commissioning. With the help of the components integrated in SIMIT, you can test your PLC code to thereby produce the highest quality and establish your new products on the market much faster.


  • • This course gives you an overview of the functions and libraries of the SIMIT simulation software.
  • • Using practical examples, you will learn step-by-step how to design simulations/models for testing automation software.
  • • The perfect interaction of all components integrated in SIMIT enables you to sustainably produce more with top quality and establish your new products on the market much faster.
  • • After attending the course, you will be able to:
    • create your own components and templates
    • create a simulation for the PLC Programm
    • set up the couplings between the simulation in SIMIT and PLCSIM Advanced
Type Face-to-face training
