Simulate equipement failure


Is there a way to simulate equipement failures, for exampel setting a sensor to be broken, i.e not giving signal when detecting an object, to get the same result as a defect component in the reality?


You can use python scripting to disable given functionalities from the components. For example, the vcBehaviour has a property ‘Enabled’ that you can set to False to disable the given behaviour. After some delay, you can set Enabled = True to again enable that behavior.

Many of the machines in the 4.3 eCatalog also have premade Failure parameters to disable the machines based on MTBF and MTTR parameters.


thank you for a quick respons. That answers my question perfectly!
