DCS EMULATION

Home Software DCS Emulation DCS/HMI emulation for a Plant-Specific Engineering or Training Simulator can be deployed in 3 ways, Automatic Translation, Manual Replication, or Virtual System.

AUTOMATIC TRANSLATION - SIMUPACT

All DCS/HMI files from the actual plant are passed to an application which automatically builds an emulation inside SimuPACT, including automated setup of control and visual blocks’ layout, faceplates, I/O signals and control signals for integration with a SimuPACT or 3rd party Process Model.

This way is quick and efficient, and accommodates easy updating of a Simulator in case the plant DCS/HMI changes.

We support all Systems from Major DCS Vendors:
  • ABB Advant Controller 450
  • ABB Process Operator Station (POS) 30
  • ABB ProControl P14
  • Alstom ALSPA P320
  • Emerson Ovation versions 2.4, 3.2 and above
  • Foxboro I/A
  • GE Machine Edition Ladder Logic
  • GE Mark VI
  • GE Mark VI Cimplicity
  • GE Mark VIe
  • GE Mark VIe Cimplicity
  • Honeywell Experion
  • Siemens T-3000 (SPPA-T3000)

MANUAL REPLICATION - SIMUPACT

Manual drawing of all DCS/HMI screens, and creating all control and visual blocks, faceplates, I/O and control signals manually inside SimuPACT, to give an accurate representation of the actual plant DCS and/or look-and-feel of the actual plant HMI for integration with a SimuPACT or 3rd party Process Model.

This way takes some time, but is very cost-effective, even though updates on the Simulator do take more time than the other options in case the plant DCS/HMI changes.

Any DCS/HMI system can be emulated manually in SimuPACT (if we don’t already have an automatic translator):
  • ABB 800xA
  • ABB Operate IT Process Portal B
  • Alstom ALSPA P320
  • Hard Panels
  • Mauell

VIRTUAL SYSTEM - SUPPLIED BY DCS/HMI VENDOR

All DCS/HMI files from the actual plant are passed to an application developed by the DCS/HMI vendor which automatically builds an emulation to run on a PC application, also developed by the vendor. This method also includes automated setup of control and visual blocks’ layout, faceplates, I/O signals and control signals for integration with a SimuPACT or 3rd party Process Model.

This way generally produces the most accurate emulation of the plant’s DCS/HMI system, but is also significantly more expensive than the other 2 options. Similar to the SimuPACT automated translation option, it is quick and efficient, and accommodates easy updating of a Simulator in case the plant DCS/HMI changes.

We support all Systems from Major DCS Vendors:
  • ABB 800xA/AC800M Controllers
  • ABB 800xA/Melody Controllers
  • ABB Harmony/Infi 90 Controllers
  • ABB S+/Melody Controllers
  • Alstom ALSPA P320
  • Emerson Delta V
  • GE Mark VIe/Cimplicity
  • Siemens PCS7
  • Siemens T-2000 (SPPA-T2000) (Teleperm XP)
  • Siemens T-3000 (SPPA-T3000)
