Independence due to open system
fe.screen-sim offers unique expandability and openness.
For example, all project data – from the system layout to the signal defi nition – is stored in readable XML format. This makes it possible to generate complete simulation systems with the data available in the company – e. g. using the “VBA” script language.
Another new feature in V4 is that the fe.screen-sim basic kernel can be purchased as a Software Development Kit (SDK) in C# on request. This opens up virtually limitless possibilities for the user: New simulation components, operating and control elements, menus and much more can be created. This means that the 3D simulation software can be freely expanded at any time.
V4 also has a new interface for application programming (API). Components can be created and used for interaction for all manual applications. In this way, your own applications and tools simplify recurrent tasks, allowing additional time savings during the creation and execution of the virtual commissioning.
Import of interface variables
Defined variables from Step 7 and TIA can be imported directly into fe.screen-sim.
The user is supported with the assignment by an Assign Tool, whereby the connection between simulation elements and PLC variables can be automatically established via significant names. The creation of new or the adjustment of existing communication variables is naturally possible at any time.
Storage files in XML
The filing of fe.screen-sim storage files takes place in XML format, whereby the files are saved in a readable form and can be adapted at any time by the software user.
This facilitates the generation of complete systems with self-written tools (for example from Excel). We shall be happy to support you in the creation of generation applications for fe.screen-sim.
