Using Virtual Reality with Machines Simulator
There are two major VR brands that work with EasyPLC’s machines simulator which are Oculus & Steam VR.
VR with Machine Simulator
The Machines Simulator VR offers you a REAL virtual 3D world with real-time graphics and physical properties where the PLC programs can be tested.
With EasyPLC & Machine Simulator it is possible using a headset for virtual reality, to use Machines Simulator in a virtual reality system, being able the user to feel inside the machines and simulated systems as if it were reality.
Machines Simulator VR is compatible with the Steam VR platform, this means that any VR system able to be compatible with Steam VR will be compatible also with PLC Virtual Simulator.
(Also compatible with Oculus Rift S and Oculus Quest & Quest2 using Oculus link or Oculus air link)
Once you have created your system with Machines Simulator Editor (or using the already predefined systems), launch PLC Virtual Simulator Machines, put your headset, and enter in the REAL VIRTUAL WORLD, touching the environment, sensors, pallets, boxes, etc…
You will test the virtual system like you were in the real world, a really amazing experience.
If you touch a sensor (inductive, photocell, proximity) with the controller, the sensor will be activated, then you can simulate errors, or not desired conditions in your machine to test the program integrity facing common mistakes regarding signals management.
Here you can see a preview of how our PLC Virtual Simulator works.
