With PLC-Lab you can create your own simplified digital twin for PLC training or to find all logical bugs in your PLC program. The objects in PLC-Lab offer extensive design and setting options, so the variety of project types that can be implemented with PLC-Lab is very high. The objects can be assigned physical properties, which then influence the behavior of the objects during simulation. 


PLC-Lab can be connected to many different systems:

Software systems:

  • PLCSIM-S7300 (Simatic Manager)
  • PLCSIM-Advanced
  • Intern Memory (IM, Flags)
  • WinSPS-S7
  • Grafcet-Studio

Hardware systems:

  • S7-300 (Siemens AG)
  • S7-400 (Siemens AG)
  • S7-1200 (Siemens AG)
  • S7-1500 (Siemens AG)
  • LOGO! (Siemens AG)

Licences properties:

  • Single-License: You can manage the license with a license manager. Moving the license between PCs is very easy. Furthermore The license can never be lost because it is cloud-based.
  • Network-License: The licenses are shared in the local network via a license server.
  • Cloud-License: The licenses are shared over the Internet, independent of the location. This allows an educational institution to share the licenses with students.
