This recorded webinar will highlight how you can transform your plant into a digital twin using Simulink, how you can test PLC applications in the lab, and make your test execution efficient and reproducible.

In particular, learn how Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulation with Simulink Real-Time™ and Speedgoat real-time target computers help you testing industrial controls. See how to use a Speedgoat multi-node simulator to simulate a plant with multiple PROFINET® devices from different vendors. We also show you how to create the restbus simulation from the PLC project and how to use MATLAB® App Designer to create a graphical user interface and interact with the virtual plant.

The model-based design workflow, including Simulink® Real-Time, enables you to perform simulation models in real-time and benefit from integrated instrumentation.


  • Simulink model-based design to transform your plant into a digital twin​
  • Emulate complete fieldbus slave networks to your PLC​
  • Instrument the real-time target machine from MATLAB® and Simulink®
  • Automated testing and fault insertion to validate PLC control algorithms
