We have a Robot cell simulation set up in Delmia or RoboDK. We want to connect a PLC emulator to it to verify aPLC code. Both Delmia and RoboDK support OPC UA.
I was wondering if there is a free emulator that is capable of connecting to Delmia or RoboDK through OPC or OPC UA. Rockwell Automation Studio 5000 Emulate PLC is expensive and we do not wanna spend money before proving the concept.
RSLogix 500 Emulate is free, I was wondering if it's capable of doing what we want or is it very limited?
