I want to implement a working Siemens TIA project into the PLCNext. Is there some converting (to for example simulink) available or should I focus on redesigning/rebuilding the complete project?

Hello arnesmets,

it is not possible to convert the complete Siemens TIA project to PLCnext project, but you can use the export functionality of PLCopen XML for export/import of IEC-Code.

If you are using MatLab Simulink code in your project, it is also possible to add Matlab Simulink® models in your PLCnext application. In this case you can add the GDS in and out ports as data interface in your simulink model, configure the PLCnext target and recompile. As result you'll get a .pcwlx file (PC Worx Engineer library) which consist the shared object with all meta information which you can add as a normal program.

If you have additionally quesions, please don't hesitate to ask !
