DEIF has developed the tool, PLC Link, for translation of the modeled application software into CodeSys IEC61131-compliant code that can be executed on the controller. The generated code is standardized and therefore compatible with a standard PLC as well as the powerful AWC 500 and AWC 400 from DEIF Wind Power Technology. The automated process is extremely fast compared to human programming and the generated code is flawless as the auto-generation eliminates the risk of human errors.
Test and simulate
PLC Link provides connectivity between the PLC system and the Simulink model, allowing the PLC to communicate with the simulation.
PLC Link offers access to the PLC system directly from Simulink or MATLAB. An included block-set allows for monitoring of variables logged by Simulink scope blocks. Online parameter tuning is available through the MATLAB command line.
