PLC simulator usage

Ladder logic elements (instructions) can be dragged and dropped onto the ladder window to create a ladder logic program.

The ladder logic program is executed by going online, ‘downloading’ the PLC program, and switching to run mode.

ProSim simulations

The Logixpro simulator provides a set of built-in simulations.

The I/O simulation initially will be of most use since it provides access to simulated discrete inputs (switches) and outputs (lamps).


Available simulators

– Door simulator
– Silo simulator
– Traffic simulator
– Batch simulator
– Dual Compressor simulator
– Bottle line simulator
– Four floor elevator simulator

Most projects will involve designing ladder logic programs to control these simulations.
