Virtual commissioning with iPhysics:
next-level planning and development

iPhysics is a physics-based 3D simulation software that offers real-time capability for virtual commissioning of mechatronic system in a holistic digital engineering approach. The innovative simulation technology makes it possible to simulate complex systems and robots quickly and easily in addition to check test runs of the PLC programming created precisely. Many functions are integrated in iPhysics for a wide range of applications in development, commissioning, production, service, and sales.

iPhysics versions and solutions

The iPhysics simulation software is based on a modular approach and is available in different versions. iPhysics offers software packages for planning as well as tools for editing and ongoing operations.

Working with planning results

mRuntime HIL & mRuntime RT

Use of simulation models for the PLC test or as an insert for a simulator for training purposes. Free parameterisation of the connection with PLC of the manufacturers ABB, Siemens, Rockwell, Schneider Electric, B&R, Beckhoff and Bosch Rexroth via TCP/IP possible. Integration of controllers via Profinet, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT or Beckhoff ADS possible.


Run and replay created simulations for tests and presentations, no connectivity to other systems

mTryout & mEducation

Higher education package for teaching purposes at universities, colleges & other educational institutions. The package includes a 2-day training for the training of one or more key users and a licence pool of up to 40 workstations. Also available as floating option (distance learning).


More efficiency with hardware & services

Use the Digital Twin in the control cabinet or as a high-performance simulation workstation. Available as XEON, GPU or server solution.

Use the FieldBox either on the desk or component in a test rack with connection to a real controller. Connected to industrial-Physics, FieldBox is only coupled to the computer or controller via plug and play and is immediately ready for use. The big advantage compared to classical virtual commissioning is that no resources of the simulation computer have to be used for field bus emulation. The complete field bus emulation is performed externally in the FieldBox. This means that changes to the PLC, which previously had to implement the ComTCP client in addition, are no longer necessary.


Stream a simulation into the Microsoft HoloLens 2 and walk around your machines while the simulation is running.


Stream a simulation to your Iphone and view the simulation in your mobile device or use the augmented reality mode to walk around the machine using your mobile phone.

Let our experts put together a turnkey test rack with controllers, digital twin hardware, FieldBoxes if necessary and other devices according to your requirements.
