For graphical programming languages, you can choose between network-oriented or free graphical programming, and mix the different languages within program organization units.
Convenient configurationPLCnext Engineer provides convenient handling when connecting high-level language programs and the standard automation.
You can easily configure your PROFINET networks, run high-level language programs or MATLAB®/Simulink® models, and start up and manage these on a PLCnext Control. You can link all variables and interfaces via the data lists, for example, in order to directly connect physical inputs and outputs to high-level language code and to exchange data.
As a result, the startup and maintenance of highly complex systems without any IEC 61131-3 code is also greatly simplified with PLCnext Engineer.
