Mechatronics systems use increasingly sophisticated automation equipment. With simulation software, such as Amatrol's MechaSIM Mechatronics Simulation training software for the L16 Allen-Bradley CompactLogix 5300 PLC (87-MSSAB53A), 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.
