There is a number of PLC simulators available for Android users. PLC simulators are used to create and edit ladder logic, thus to study the PLC ladder logic. To stimulate the ladder logic in the system there is no need for actual PLC panel.

There are few good simulator available for Android systems, here we have picked some of the best free simulator for you.

1. Macro PLC:

Macro PLC is available for free in the play store. They provide a number of ladders in the first window itself, one can easily add components to it, switches, Blocks, and we have to connect the dots to complete one ladder line.

The line through which the signal passing is shown in blue colour. We can view the change when ladder ON/OFF. This app much more representation of a panel.

2. Adruino PLC:

Adruino PLC is much similar to the Macro PLC. Resembles as the orginal PLC panel, not so advanced but provides basic functions. Each ladder is set one by one and outputs can be set to boolen, digital, analoge etc…

3. PLC ladder simulator:

PLC ladder simulator is one of the best, they have PRO version too. This app is best but we have to get used with it once. The rungs are to be added one by one. Before adding each rung we have to specify input and output condition, it should be correctly given otherwise rung will not generate.

All the features of this app good. Only thing is that to be getting used. Almost all blocks are available.

4.ST PLC app:

A nice app. Star with new project, each of the ladder is splited into some blocks, one have to fill each blocks with even a line. Ladder can be created only one ST boards.

ST PLC app.

5. PLC basics:

One good app which explains PLC and ladder logic instructions, blocks. PLC basics contains the information about Allen Bradley and Siemens PLCs specifically.
