Does anyone know... Is there any software that can be use to simulate the PLC program without using PLC(hardware).?

All information regarding this topic will be highly appreciate.

Thx you IN advance

If ppl PM me I can help out with a very nice "generic" PLC simulator.

Good for testing ideas etc. Just keep in mind it is capable of "Shoe box" level PLC simulation, but who's complaining when its free :wink:

Hi people,

For PLC simulators:

- $iemen$ : S7: PLCSIM (great), S5 (S5 für Windows from IBHSOFTEC), or WinSPS S5 or WinSPS S7
- OMRON : none :(
- MODICON : inside the Concept software

For S7, there just a new simulation tool from IBHSOFTEC, called S7 Debugger, it works like PLCSIM, also with original programming software STEP7, according to IBH, it should have more options than PLCSIM :lol:

No you can't KC :wink:

For S5, use WinSPS S5, it's the best and most complete simulator for S5, it even simulated the 135U floating point instructions :D

s5 simulator

try this software

plc simulation program

I used the training software by mitsubishi to simulate PLCs. Check out the following link :

not only does this software simulate the PLC but also it has tutorials and some very cool animations.

Hello sorry for bumping up old threads but I couldn't find the answer for what I'm looking.
I'm looking for a PLC simulator, but no one here seems to agree on an answer and also more than a year has passed and new softwares are always developed. I'm programming an Eaton ELC-PC12NNDR. What's the best simulator for it?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for being late!
The best Simulation and learning software for PLC is FX-Training Software.
It has 3D simulation environment. i.e Conveyor Belt, Switches, sensors, shutter etc.

Hi all
u can use LADSIM for this purpuse .
and view simulation with out attached PLC (hardware).

Added after 1 minutes:

U can used STEP-7 Lite software .which have no Lecience key req for activation.

hI Ilyas can u up;load it to filefactory or deposite file
it is not working here


The best simulation software I have been tested is EasyPLC, you can use Simatic S7 and Rslogix, and also there's a utility called Machines Simulator where your programs cab be tested in a 3d environment. The web site is

Hi all.
I know this is a old post but i found it surfing on the web and hope you guys still there :)
I'm working on a Intrusion detection system that have to be placed right before and after a PLC (i mean in network configuration) that communicate in profibus.
I'm new in this field and maybe i have confused idea, so if i say something wrong or stupid, please let me now.
i was wondering if there is any software that can emulate or simulate profibus communication. i need just the communications that could pass through my IDS in order to get them and analyze them

please let me know if there is some kind of software that could be useful to this purpose.

Thanks to all of you.
