Functional Mock-up Interface

Plug and model – that is the principle behind the Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI). FMI is an independent industry standard. It enables models to be exchanged and simulated using various development tools. B&R offers a mechanism for importing Functional Mock-up Units (FMU) in accordance with the FMI 2.0 standard. FMUs are seamlessly integrated as function blocks in Automation Studio.
