What benefits does IEC 61131-3 offer?

  • IEC 61131-3 makes controls easier to develop and maintain.
  • The programming language improves software life cycles, making requirements analysis, design, construction, testing, validation, installation, operation, and maintenance easier.
  • IEC 61131-3 increases the efficiency of implementing new automation solutions by using readily available control components developed on other projects and by outside developers.
  • Designers can program complicated systems without spending needless time, money, and effort on software.
  • Users encounter less errors since data typing helps to prevent them early in development.
