SIMIT in Process Automation (ST-PCS7SIM) (ST-PCS7SIM)

  • • This course provides you with a summary of the functions and libraries of the simulation software SIMIT in the field of process automation.


  • • 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 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.
