IEC 61131-3 is the globally relevant standard for developing programmable logic controllers (PLCs). It defines text-based and graphic languages.
As a result of this standardisation, functions and function blocks can be employed in all languages that are written in one of the other languages or made available by the PLC manufacturer in the form of software libraries without source code.
The infoteam IEC 61131-3 product portfolio is one of the longest available and most sophisticated IEC 61131-3 environments.
OpenPCS is the version of our IEC 61131-3-compliant programming environment for the development of control applications which has proven its worth on the market. With the SmartPLC/embedded runtime system on your control system you can convert your existing hardware into a programmable system in accordance with IEC 61131-3 quickly and easily.
We recommend a two-day IEC 61131-3 intensive training for your engineers. This includes the ideal combination of theory and practice. Our instructors are qualified experts in the field of industrial and process automation.
The workshop communicates the properties and concepts of the IEC 61131-3 standard and the PLC programming of modular systems and illustrated them using practical examples.
Tell us your requirements and framework conditions and we will explain the architecture of the OpenPCS programming system and the SmartPLC runtime system to you based on your situation.
Together we develop a technical concept and a schedule for further procedures.
The OpenPCS-2015 firmware is written in ANSI-C with the aim of higher portability. Consequently, it can be easily adapted to your operating system, your hardware platform and your particular requirements.
We perform this first step towards IEC 61131-3 on your control system in the scope of the adaptation workshops in cooperation with your experts.
