The Sample Runtime C++ project on Github has been updated with more features and a completely new documentation structure. The project now includes a step-by-step “getting started” guide to building your own runtime for PLCnext Control in C++, starting with a simple “Hello PLCnext” application.
The term “runtime” is used to describe a specific type of PLCnext application. PLCnext runtime applications usually provide an alternative to the real-time control components provided by the Automation Runtime Platform (ARP) – i.e. the Execution and Synchronisation Manager (ESM) and the Embedded Common Language Runtime (eCLR).
Check out the project on Github, and let us know what you think.
