Standardization and modularization

Reuse automation modules easily

The new PLCnext Engineer platform makes it possible to add automation modules that consist of defined software parts. This results in a host of advantages for software programmers. Development times can be accelerated significantly, thanks to the fast and simple reusing of these modules. This saves engineering costs and reduces error sources since certifications, testing, and programming only have to be performed once.

The use of automation modules significantly increases the quality and efficiency of programming in complex systems in particular. Since program codes can be used both in IEC 61131-3 and in C/C++ or C# thanks to PLCnext Technology, the automation modules themselves can contain mixed program code.
