Voted best answer
I understood you want to simulate hardware ? after reading between the lines :)
Please note that emulator is exclusively there in CBF when you don't have HW(physical controller) and you want to test your logic and operator functionality linked to controller without physical HW(controller).
Now to simulate HW i.e I/O channels (because what else is there in HW) you can force values directly from I/O editors and check values are changing on Digital multimeter or some kind measuring equipment.
Just fetching last two lines from question,
but the emulator not simulate the hardware - yes, that is why it's emulator.
is it any way to don't need to remove the hardware from the program to simulate - didn't get you much but incase you want to test anything allocated to HW(controller) resource, just copy/paste or export/import to Emulator resource test it and after confirmation use it in real controller or in real-time.
Hope that answers a bit, if not pls reply back with more info or specific problem.
Open internet explorer on any other browser . In Adress bar Type
Emulatow/controller page will be displayed
Give a numeric number in the text box against Station ID
Click the link start controller/emulator
message will be displayed "A new controller will be started"
If not check the Freelance Emulater service is running by looking in to Cointrol Panerl>Adminstrative Tools>Services
If Not running change its control mode to manual then start it and then change control mode to automatic.
If this servrice does not exist it means emulator software has not been installed on your system. So reinstall and make sure emulator software is installed.
Once he emulator/controller is rumnning open the CBF Press the Network button on toolbar.List of hardware will be dispaled showing their resorse ID and IP Address. Double click the emulator entry change IP Adress to 127.0.0.1 and resource ID to station ID you enterd in emulatr page. Save and restart CBF . Now in Commissiong mode Emulator status will be "ruuning Version Error" . now u can download your program to emulator. Hope this will be working
