RS Emulate 5000 v19.1: The Ultimate Guide to PLC Simulation
Emulate is a great way to mimic a controller when the original code is not available. Lets see how we did this. I was able to find some PLC language documentation that at the very least tells you what macros to use. So the documentation that comes with the tools state that you should use the following macros for reading the PLC data into Emulate

So lets write an Emulate controller that will read and emulate this instruction set. This is very similar to what I did for the 5500 in 2018 but we actually added the check for the interrupt. Now the data is not 0 based.
At Andy, we use GitHub for many of our dev workflows and its actively maintained open source project. This product is a single binary executable file which means that once you download it, it install itself for your user, and it will never ask for any consent or approval. Every single time you start an instance of this software, it will pull the latest code from GitHub and start up. This means that you can start using it immediately and always have the latest code.
In addition to the 50 scripts that come with the software, you'll get full access to the Script Builder. You can start from one of the many sample scripts available (make sure you download the sample script zip file from the download page) and work your way to your own scripts. Script Builder is a great tool for both learning and for making scripts. When you're ready, you can simply press Finish and have a ready to use script.
The newest version of RSLogix 5000 (PN# 9326-LGXARCHENE) is the most fully-featured version of RS and the ideal version for those who want to learn how to use the latest version of Ladder Logic, Phase Manager, or Autotune, or want to develop their own language. It will work with any graphics package that supports PN#9324-RLDPME, PN#9323-ATUNEENE (works with Logix 16 or higher), and PN#9324-RLDMLPE (best with Logix 16, but will work with 15). The architecture of its programming language(SFC) is identical to that of PN#9326-LGXARCHENE and PN#9325-LGX-ALT, with the addition of an Alternative Block Diagram language (A, PN#9328-ALTB), a Boolean and Type Logic language (BNL, PN#9322-BTLE), a Swing/ Java programming language (PN#9329-JLRE,) a Dynamic/ Profiling Diagrams language (PN#9324-DLPD,) and a Java Class Diagram language (PN#9325-JCLD, both work with PN#9324-DLPD).
