Mynah Technologies Releases Mimic Simulation Software v3.6.2
Mynah Technologies’ newly-released Mimic Simulation Software v3.6.2 includes:
• A new function block toolkit for process control improvement
• New functionality to support Rockwell Automation RSTestStand users
• The next generation of the Mimic External Model Interface (MEMI)
The dynamics provided by the new function blocks can simulate the dynamics of control system components and document the results with online process metrics. The pH probe block can reportedly model the response of nearly all pH systems and provides a first principle solution by means of a charge balance. The process control improvement function blocks can be implemented by configuring the new Mimic blocks using the key parameters defined in the ISA dictionary.
In partnership with Rockwell Automation, Mynah has developed a migration path for users of Rockwell’s RSTestStand to Mimic Simulation Software. Mimic 3.6.2 contains a set of blocks that provide a one-to-one functionality equivalency for RSTestStand. The new blocks are Analog Valve, Generic VFD, Message Array, Motor Operated Valve, Momentary Latched MOV, On Off Valve, Rotary Axis, Simple Axis and Velocity Position.
Mimic v3.6.2 can integrate third party models such as those created in MS Visual Studio in C, C++, Visual Basic or models developed in process design platforms such as HYSYS or MatLab, into Mimic. MEMI 2.0 has additional model integration and synchronization capabilities and user awareness and controls in Mimic Diagnostics and Simulation Studio. There are also enhancements to Mimic’s Component Studio, Explorer, Simulation Studio, VIM Bridge, Property DB Editor and License Manager included in the release.
