DeltaV™ S-series Virtual I/O Module 2
0_PDP_DeltaV S-series Virtual IO Module 2
The DeltaV™ S-series Virtual I/O Module 2 (VIM2) provides nonintrusive simulation of the DeltaV S-series I/O Cards and digital bus field devices for process simulation when used with Emerson's Mimic Simulation Software.
DeltaV control strategies and system configurations can be fully tested with this powerful simulation interface. The VIM2 also provides an interface to Ethernet I/O networks and devices that use e.g. the Modbus TCP or Ethernet/IP protocol drivers.
