In this paper we describe the architecture and implementation of a virtual lab designed to show the effect of the network delay on a distributed network-based control system. In particular, we focus on electric motor actuators which represent one of the most time-critical devices in the process control area. The virtual lab allows the user to send commands to the motors through several communication networks with different features and to evaluate the performance degradation produced by the network delay.
