d4Simulator is a tool which enables operational simulations with a dasa4 system in a desk-top environment. The system comprises a dasa4-system, where the I/O units have been replaced by a simulator computer and a PC.
The PC contains the timber which is to be felled in the form of timber profiles; .stm files. Furthermore a graphic display of the actual unit is shown allowing the process to be monitored in real time. It is also possible to select different variables required to be followed separately during the process, either as discrete values or in a built-in logic analyzer.
d4Simulator is extremely useful for demonstrations, in training and not least, as a test tool in d4Developer.
