Greetings. I like to use the "Online -> Simulation Mode" in CoDeSys when I am developing firmware changes for the PM583-ETH. This is for Automation Builder 1.2.0 and CoDeSys Version 126.96.36.199. One thing I wish I could do: Receive and generate ethernet traffic in Simulation Mode, even if it's just on the local IP address of my PC. This would help me fully test out all capabilities of the firmware. Is there a way to achieve this?
This is not possible in the simulation mode of Codesys in AB1.2. AFAIK, it is not possible to simulate any of the communication related FBs in the codesys program. In AB 2.x premium versions, there is a licensed Soft Controller (Virtual Commissioning). Am not sure what is the complete scope of this soft controller. Please contact your regional ABB for more info.
