Mechatronics systems use increasingly sophisticated automation equipment. With Simulation software, such as MechaSIM Mechatronics Simulation training software for the L16 Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5300 PLC, a user can create and test a program before downloading the program to the PLC. This saves considerable time in testing and troubleshooting programs and prevents costly damage to equipment.

What is Graphical Simulation Software?

Graphical simulation software provides a virtual version of the real environment. This could be a single object or a group of objects that interact with one another. A graphical representation of a PLC, for example, operates the same as a real-world PLC. The program operation is observed and modified until the program runs as intended. The resulting program can then be downloaded to the PLC and tested.

Graphic simulation software shows the operation of each piece of hardware in response to each input and output. The programmer can watch cylinders extend and retract, parts move from point A to point B, and so on. An example of geographical simulation software is the MechaSIM software. The program is downloaded to the PLC and the virtual Mechatronics stations are started. The operator monitors the operation from many different angles, watching for faults or collisions with hardware. This provides the programmer with the opportunity to test and modify the program before downloading it to the PLC connected to the hardware.

Mechatronics Simulation | Optional Online eBooks Available

As an online option to the Learning Activity Packets (LAPs) Amatrol’s eBooks look like a real book and allow users to flip between pages with ease. Enhanced with features, such as keyword searches and zoom controls, that enable a user to quickly locate and view information make these eBooks a great learning tool. Available online through Amatrol’s Learning Management System (LMS), this comprehensive curriculum advances learners’ understanding of concepts at the click of a button. High quality graphics paired with hands-on, applied skills keep learners focused and engaged in their work. Amatrol’s eBooks allow courses to be taken completely online anywhere with an internet connection!

Student Reference Guide

A sample copy of this course’s Student Reference Guide is included with the learning system. Sourced from the  curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. If you would like to inquire about purchasing additional Student Reference Guides for your program, contact your local Amatrol Representative for more information.
