ASIMA for PLC – Basic


ASIMA for PLC – Basic

The System Simulator II (ASIMA) is optimally suited for operation with the SPC S7-1200 and S7-1512. 19 different applications are available in the basics setup. The broad experiment spectrum ranges from testing of SPC functions through to controlling small controllers and facilitates universal use of ASIMA in education.

Educational objectives

  • Programming simple basic circuits
  • Programming machine circuits
  • Programming small systems

The set contains the basic device ASIMA System Simulator II, including a collection of tasks on CD. ASIMA is connected with the SPC via 4 mm safety connectors or a 50-pole ribbon cable (700 mm). The following is made available:

  • 12 digital inputs, 12 digital outputs
  • 2 analogue inputs, 2 analogue outputs
  • 4 relay with break contact
  • Control and display elements:
  • 6 buttons, 6 button incremental switch, 33 LEDs
  • 2 potentimeter with 0 … 10 V DC
  • 1 bar graph display comprised of 24 segments

The setup is designed for students and student experiments. Practical exercises require that the learner resolve the respective controller problem with their own programming. Suggested solutions are included as a file.

Knowledge of the basics of SPC programming is required in order to successfully complete the course.

The topics are handled by placing different screens on the basic ASIMA device.
