20-sim is a modelling and simulation program that runs under Microsoft Windows. With 20-sim you can simulate the behavior of dynamic systems, such as electrical, mechanical and hydraulic systems or any combination of these. 20-sim fully supports the use of components. This allows you to enter models as in an engineering sketch: by choosing components from the library and connecting them, your engineering scheme is actually rebuilt, without entering a single line of math!
20-sim 4C is a software package that enables rapid prototyping for control engineers. With 20-sim 4C you can run c-code on hardware to control machines and systems and run HIL-tests. 20-sim 4C imports c-code from 20-sim, Matlab and Scilab This allows you to run it on hardware like embedded arm boards, PC 104 systems and much more.
With Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulation the physical part of a machine or system is replaced by a simulation. This allows rigorous testing of the control system without the real machine connected. The HIL Simulation module allows you to connect 20-sim models with PLC’s and create HIL simulators. Contact Controllab to get more information.
VR & AR
The Unity module allows you to connect 20-sim with Unity. Unity is a cross-platform game engine which is used to create three-dimensional simulations and display these on screens of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AG) headsets. With the Unity module, we can couple a simulation in 20-sim and display the results in 3D.
