Real Games releases an interactive training system software for PLC
Oporto, Portugal – January 3, 2008 – Real Games released ITS PLC 1.0 Professional Edition.
ITS PLC stands for Interactive Training System for PLC. It is a software designed for PLC training and education. With ITS PLC you get 5 real world based industrial systems so you can program your PLC and validate your control algorithm through a real-time interactive experience.
Based on the latest PC technology, ITS PLC makes PLC training easy and fun. Virtual environments have never been so real, featuring cutting-edge 3D real-time graphics, physics, sound and total interactivity. The result is an immersive simulated environment that allows highly realistic training scenarios, without any risk of injury to man or damage to machine.
How does is it work?
Each system is a visual simulation of an industrial system including virtual sensors and actuators, so their state can be sensed by the PLC.
The objective is to program the PLC to control each virtual system as if it was a real system. The information is exchanged between the PLC and the virtual system by a data acquisition board with 32 I/O isolated channels and USB interface. ITS PLC works with any PLC from any manufacturer.
ITS PLC is compatible with Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system.
On the company's website its possible to see some videos and download the Demo version of ITS PLC 1.0 Professional Edition.
