AC 800PEC Simulation
I am working with a client who has issues with a specific routine within a AC 800PEC controller. I want to test a variation of this routine myself but I am unable to do that because I have no access right now to the real controller. So, I was thinking if there is any chance that I can use Control Builder M Professional 5.0.2/3 and a SoftController instance to test this code. Is it possible? Do I need a different version of CBM with specialized libraries to simulate an AC 800PEC controller?
Thanks for your attention. Any answer would be highly appreciated.

AC 800PEC applications are usually divided on two parts: fast and slow.
Slow code made with IEC 61131 language (task cycle >= 1ms). Such applications can be simulated using AC 800M Softcontroller, but task cycle musn't exceed 10ms for the SoftController.
Fast code made with Matlab Simulink or using VHDL (task cycle <1ms). Such applications are usually added in project as .hwd file. It can't be simulated using SoftController.
To be able to download your applications in AC 800PEC you need install special extensions for Control Builder(I don't remember exact name, something like AC 800PEC Toolbox).
