Factory I/O offers more than 20 scenes inspired by typical industrial applications to practice real world control tasks. Use a scene as it is or as a starting point for a new project.
Create a virtual factory using a palette of industrial parts, including sensors, conveyors, elevators, stations, and many others.
Factory I/O smart editing tools make building a 3D scene a comfortable and natural experience. Use a palette of industrial parts and customize Factory I/O by creating your own training scenarios.
Most parts include digital and analog I/O. For example, use a digital value to start or stop a conveyor or an analog value to weigh items or control liquid levels.
Factory I/O uses drivers to interface with PLC, SoftPLC, PLC simulators, Modbus and many other technologies. Each edition includes a bundle of drivers for a specific technology (i.e. Allen-Bradley Edition, Siemens Edition, …).
Practice troubleshooting routines by easily injecting Always On and Always Off failures in sensors and actuators.
Lock several options with an instructor password. Challenge trainees to complete partially built systems, find malfunctions and failures.
Easily integrate Factory I/O with existent training equipment. Plug and Play with Siemens and Allen-Bradley PLC (Ethernet). May require wiring for other brands through interface boards.
