Allen Bradley PLC Simulation


I have a simple simulation project to come up with AB RS5000 logic PLC with Ethernet/IP to read/write WITHOUT the physical hardware. Can any one suggest an working example with workflow to do this to get me started. Can a PLC be simulated on a windows 10 system/ Raspberry PI/NodeRed to do this along with Losant. Appreciated.


Studio 5000 Logix Emulate might be an option:

I don’t know for certain if it exposes the simulated PLC via Ethernet/IP, but might be worth checking out.
