Speedgoat offers a wide range of products to emulate plant components for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and virtual commissioning. In addition, fault insertion I/O modules enable safety critical applications to be tested. Emulated plant components include:
For virtual commissioning of distributed control systems with large industrial Ethernet and fieldbus networks, Speedgoat multi-node simulators can be used to test “real” fieldbus devices (e.g. PLCs and electric drives) together with a “virtual” plant (or digital twin) in order to debug and maintain PLC logic and control designs. Industrial protocols supported include PROFIBUS, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, Modbus TCP, and EtherCAT.
