Title: Programming embedded devices in iec 61131-languages with industrial plc tools using plcopen xml
Authors: Markus Simros , Martin Wollschlaeger , Stefan Theurich
Abstract: Application development for industrial embedded devices is often a device-specific task. In contrast, PLC programming is performed using standard industrial programming suites using IEC 61131. Using these suites for programming embedded devices would help to reuse existing applications and engineering concepts and opens an easy way for prototyping and learning. This paper describes a concept for adopting IEC 61131 programming suites and the PLCopen standard export format as input for the device-specific tool chain. In order to address interoperability, a variable-independent IO data mapping using serviceinterface blocks derived from IEC 61499 has been developed. An evaluation was performed on LEGO (R) Mindstorms for proving feasibility.
