IEC 61131

The Bedrock Integrated Development Environment IDE adheres to the IEC 61131 open standard for configuration engineering. IEC 61131 is an open standard developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). It applies to configuring control applications typical of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Programmable Automation Controllers (PAC) and Safety systems. The IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

IEC-61131-3 specifies the syntax and semantics of a unified suite of programming languages for programmable controllers. The suite consists of the following:

  • textual languages
    • Instruction List (IL)
    • Structured Text (ST)
  • graphical languages
    • Ladder Diagram (LD)
    • Sequential Function Chart (SFC)
    • Continuous Function Chart (CFC) (extension to IEC 61131-3)

In addition, features are defined which facilitate communication among programmable controllers and other components of automated systems.
