What common elements make up IEC 61131-3?

  • Data typing is used to define parameters and prevent errors early in development.
  • Users can use standard types of data or define their own variables for data typing, called derived data types.
  • Variables are assigned to explicit hardware addresses, or explicit inputs and outputs.
  • Variables have scope, which allows their names to be reused in other parts without conflict or errors.
