EC: SIMIT simulation software
Software — Applications: Siemens SIMIT enables the real-time simulation for extensive engineering checkout and virtual commissioning of equipment, machines, and processes from the office, even when these assets are not available. This is a Control Engineering 2015 Engineers’ Choice finalist.
SIMIT fulfills the complete scope for real-time simulation requirements for automation with three modeling and simulation levels:
- IO's and signals
- Sensors and actuators
- Plant equipment and process.
SIMIT provides comprehensive visualization features (including 3D) and allows for testing of simple IO checks and loopbacks, interlocks and sequences, alarms and operator messages, and equipment and process behavior. SIMIT can also be set up as an operator training console, helping end users train new employees
