Are you working on large-scale industrial installations, infrastructure or systems like production plants, ships, machinery, wind farms, solar parks, power grids, tunnels or train networks? Are you looking for ways to test the control systems of such plants in the lab?
These large-scale industrial system networks have multiple field devices like sensors, and machines, connected to a programmable logic controller (PLC). Speedgoat multi-node simulator emulates these field devices and their interfaces, which are for e.g., industrial protocols like PROFIBUS, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP and Modbus TCP. Each emulated field device, represents a physical network device
Benefit from Speedgoat modular solutions allowing you to combine several multi-node I/O modules to create large industrial networks with multiple industrial protocol networks. This solution has several advantages when compared to a software-only virtual simulator:
- The nodes can run independently in real-time with parallel execution
- Network collisions can happen in the same way as on a real bus
- Component failure can be simulated by shutting down a node
- Complete Model-based Design workflow from Simulink can be used, along with full application integration and automated code generation
