This is is a short demonstration of a co-simulation between Siemens PLCSIM Advanced and C#.
The goal is simple : have the ability to conditionally change inputs. We’ll do a proof of concept with a small exemple for a safety relay monitored by a feedback.
Co-simulation : PLCSIM Advanced with C#

RFLink is a great, flexible and opensource RF gateway for 433Mhz devices. I use it with Domoticz. Every few months, a new firmware is released and they add a lot of new devices. This post describe how to update an RFLink gateway in a Linux environment.

I used to use a Raspberry Pi as a data logger for many sensors, here is how I create a nice front-end for data visualization.
- Store data : SQLite
- Serve content : Python with Flask
- Plot data : Hightcharts / Highstock

In this example, we’ll use a Raspberry Pi and a DHT22 temperature and humidity sensor to print values on a web interface.

The goal is to prototype a temperature and humidity sensor that will be able to send data through Wi-Fi using the open-source platform ThingSpeak.

This post is following the one on
Siemens PLC simulation with PlcSim. 1. PlcSim
We need a running program on PlcSim. PlcSim has to use the PLCSIM(TCP/IP) interface and has to be listening on the same IP as the computer.
Here a DB with one bit that is toggled every second :
Your PLC side is ready !

SIMATIC S7-PLCSIM allows you to simulate a controller for functional testing on the programming device/PC.
2.1 New project
As a first step, we start SIMATIC Manager and create a new project.
