Simulation Mode for automation builder v1.2.4 using basic license.
I am writing some code for a PLC AC500 but I only have acess to the hardware once a week. So I have been testing most of my code using the simulation mode. The issue is in this mode the scan cycle time seems to not be respected and many FBs like taskinfo, CurTime, SysMemMove only work when I am connected to the PLC and not in simulation mode. I was wondering if there is any way of solve this or is it just not possible.
One last question: is it possible to simulate 2 PLCs communicating together over a serial link for example. Does simulation mode support such functionality ?
The simulation mode in the CoDeSys Editor with AB 1.x is limited.
If you would like to have full simulation features, please use the Virtual Commisioning package (license required) on Automation Builder 2.0 Premium version.
It allow you to simulate all the function & libraries. Besides that, you can simulate the communication for 2 or more PLC by exchange the data tags.
