High-end software development using IEC and other languages
- PLCOpen and IEC standards-based environments
- Alternative to C/C++ programming for high end software solutions
The IEC G-MAS PLCOpen programming tool is built in to the Elmo Application Studio (EAS). It enables development of G-MAS programs in full accordance with the IEC standard and supports all five IEC languages.
A programmer can use all standard PLC-Open motion functions and administrative functions that are supported by G-MAS. The tool enables building complete and complicated software for a wide range of high end motion solutions. It includes abundant sample code, motion libraries and templates to ease and simplify integration.
Using the IEC G-MAS PLCOpen tool, a programmer can build libraries which can be reused in multiple projects and software solutions. The tool features a simple, intuitive graphical user interface.
The tool also enables users without any programming knowledge to exploit most G-MAS software capabilities.
The IEC G-MAS PLCOpen tool supports IEC 61131-3, which defines both graphical and textual PLC programming language standards:
