The Mathworks' Simulink PLC Coder generates IEC 61131 structured text for programmable logic controller (PLC) and programmable automation controller (PAC) devices, enabling model-based design for manufacturing and power generation equipment controlled by PLCs and PACs. With the Simulink PLC Coder, engineers can automatically generate code for industrial control systems, including closed-loop and supervisory control applications, to reduce errors associated with traditional hand coding and to decrease development and validation time. The Coder generates source code in structured text format from Simulink models, stateflow charts, and embedded MATLAB code and then uses an integrated development environment from an automation vendor to compile the code and run it on a PLC or PAC. Users choose between generating structured text or C code, depending on the application needs.
