Electrical and Controls Engineering: Emulation
DSI provides customers with the capability to emulate and verify their controls logic for new or modified production systems.
DSI’s emulation process establishes a virtual environment for a specific material handling system or production environment with full functionality, feedback, and a 3D graphical view of the entire system.
It also creates representations of control panels and allows the common field faults to be applied to a programmable logic controller (PLC) logic. This emulated environment allows DSI to analyze an entire material handling system in an office setting without effecting production.
DSI also has the ability to easily stage test specific and targeted scenarios while running the system at full capacity to verify capabilities.
Emulation allows extensive testing of control and diagnostic hardware prior to a material handling plant installation greatly reducing start-up time and providing additional cost savings.
- Minimal debug and start-up times.
- Logic testing and debug prior to construction.
- Ability to test complex routing requirements.
- System operator and maintenance training.
- Risk mitigation.
- Substantial start-up cost savings.
