PLC – Programmable logic controller
Any number of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) can be connected to fe.screen-sim.
The software supports models of various types and manufacturers of programmable logic controllers, such as Siemens S7 (model series: 200, 300, 400, 1200, 1500) and compatible controllers, Allen Bradley, Rockwell, Beckhoff (TwinCAT 3), Fanuc, WAGO, PLCSIM Advanced and Simulation Unit.
For communication, fe.screen-sim is connected to the controller via native drivers. A connection to the SIMBA PNIO hardware platform is of course possible, as is the use of the Siemens Simulation Unit or emulators such as PLC Sim Advanced. In addition, a direct connection to a real controller is also possible.
