Simulink PLC Coder generates IEC 61131 structured text for models

Simulink PLC Coder generates IEC 61131 structured text for models that an IDE can deploy to industrial control systems.

Features & benefits

  • Enables model-based design for manufacturing and power-generation equipment controlled by PLCs and PACs; engineers can automatically generate code for industrial controls

  • Helps eliminate errors associated with hand coding; reduces development and validation time

  • Source code from Simulink, Stateflow charts, embedded MATLAB code; integrated development environment (IDE) from an industrial automation vendor compiles code to run on controls

  • Starts at $10,000; third-party modules available from Rockwell Automation and B&R Industrial Automation
