It is the first free IDE of PLC that is based on a strict follow-up of the IEC 61131-3 Standard , in which the model and programming languages of the Programmable Controllers are standardized.
This license allows the unlimited redistribution of the PLC software, with or without modifications , and for any purpose , as long as the authorship and the waiver of original guarantees are maintained.
IDE4PLC is an implementation of:
- The specification of the computational model of the PLC programming concepts included in the Standard IEC 61131-3: 2003, conceived from the fundamental principles of programming with objects.
- A user interface design of the programming environment, with screen formats, interactions between the different screens, and general indications of usability.
- The definition of the execution software environment to be mounted on the hardware, in such a way that the programs generated from the programming environment are executed on the defined execution environment.
