Controllab is the owner and developer of the software packages 20-sim and 20-sim 4C. We started working on these packages 25 years ago. With the development of these packages we gradually increased knowledge into multiple domains of software engineering.
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.
The engineers of Controllab have gained a lot of experience with the Bachmann controllers during the design of our HIL simulators. This gave us a deep knowledge into the C-code capabilities of these controllers. This was acknowledged by Bachmann electronic GmbH by establishing a partnership with Controllab. If you are using Bachmann controllers and are in need of a company to do advanced software development, please contact us.
