St. Louis, MO – Mynah Technologies has released MiMiC v3.1.0 Simulation Software for operator training and automation system testing for industrial plants.
The new version supersedes last May’s MiMiC v3 software release that included: MiMiC v2.x to v3 simulation file migration; MiMiC Server; HIMA software PLC SIO driver and utility; Bailey Infi 90 / previse soft controller SIO driver, and the operator training manager ran as Service; OTM controls through MiMiC OPC server.

The new MiMiC v3.1.0 offers enhancements for greater simulation dynamics, performance, and ease-of-use, with the release of MiMiC Server, an enhanced Operator Training Manager, and Component Studio instructor station, an enhanced OPC server, and a new HIMA simulated I/O driver, plus major enhancements to Simulation Studio and Component Studio applications.
The release provides multi-user support to a single MiMiC application based on Microsoft’s Server 2003 Remote Terminal Services, which allows up to 10 users access to the same MiMiC application from a standard Microsoft Windows XP or Vista desktop. It allows remote access for simulation development, large-scale automation system testing, and multiple operator training instructor stations. The MiMiC Access Control Layer works with Microsoft Server 2003 to coordinate access requests, protect the integrity of the simulation database, and simplify management of the multi-user simulation environment.
The enhanced Operator Training Manager is a redesign to simplify development and execution of training sessions, Mynah Technologies says. It runs as a service instead of an application, allowing the user to configure training scenarios, take Process Snapshots, and run operator training sessions from MiMiC Explorer. Training sessions and process snapshots can be loaded and run from the graphical MiMiC Component Studio that provides the full functionality of an operator training instructor station and the ability to drive ad-hoc training scenarios.
An enhanced OPC Server is standard, allowing open access to process models, operator training scenarios, process snapshot controls, and MiMiC global registers, says Mynah Technologies. The information is available when the system is off or on-line and allows users open access and integration with third-party simulation packages or data visualization systems.
MiMiC v3.1.0 Simulated IO Driver for HIMA offers a high-performance simulation interface for HIMA’s RTS Soft PLC Visualization Gateway application. It can be used only with a HIMA system or in combination with any basic process control system using HIMA for the safety system.
MiMiC is scalable and can be implemented to develop, modify, and maintain MiMiC simulations. It works with off-line process control systems, including Emerson Process Management DeltaV, Schneider Electric Unity and Quantum platforms, Previse ABB Simulator, and other systems that support OPC or Open Modbus TCP/IP protocols.
MiMiC users who are current on MiMiC Software Support can upgrade to MiMiC v3.1.0 for no additional charge.
