Maplesoft Introduces New Simulation Testing Tool

Maplesoft has released MapleSim Insight, a new software that provides simulation-based debugging and 3D visualization capabilities that connect to automation tools. The software allows engineers to perform simulation-based testing of their controller.

Simulation-based testing of machine control strategies is a key element of virtual prototyping and utilizing digital twins for virtual commissioning, Maplesoft said. The process, however, has cumbersome elements and sometimes requires engineers to use additional platforms. With MapleSim Insight, engineers have a real-time connection to several automation platforms and are able to see instantly how their control strategies will impact the machine, the company said.

MapleSim Insight works with any automation tool that supports complied Function Mock-up Units (FMUs). The machine model is first developed in MapleSim, the system-level modeling tool from Maplesoft, and then exported as an FMU, an open standard format for sharing models.

MapleSim Insight connects to the automation tool and displays visual results in real-time to show how the model behaves as the controller runs. MapleSim Insight provides 3D visualizations for quick visual feedback and 2D plots to obtain answers for testing and debugging.
