Possibility Virtual Commissioning using multiple PLC'S in Process Simulate

Dear Experts,

 

One of our customer is interested in simulating entire line in process simulate using multiple PLC’S.

 

Currently they are using Kepware OPC server, S7 1200 PLC and PS 13.1.

 

Is it possible to connect Multiple PLC’S to Kepware and simulate entire line in PS?

If yes what is the maximum limit?

 

Thanks in Advance

Hi

 

If your'e asking about limiations of the Kepware OPC server, I suggest you visit KepWare forums which can better supply an answer. 

 

For Process Simulate you can define any number of parallel "External Connections" and assign differnt signals to different connections so you could connect to several different KepWare OPC servers in parallel. 

I do not think there's a limit to how many external connections can be used in parallel. 

Kind regards,
Gal Snir
