eXtended Automation, the core principle of TwinCAT 3 adds numerous enabling tools to the lineup of technologies already established in the TwinCAT platform. While the bases for automation, PLC, motion control, robotics and HMI programming have been well-covered in TwinCAT for many years, version 3 adds the opportunity to use Object-Oriented programming, C/C++, Matlab®/Simulink®, software-based safety and more, all in a standardized Microsoft Visual Studio®-based shell. Of course, all of the IEC 61131-3 programming languages are usable in TwinCAT 3 so programmers can select the languages and tools that are best-suited to each application.
This educational seminar will provide a technical overview of the primary elements of TwinCAT 3 and eXtended Automation technology.
Watch this webinar to learn the latest automation programming tools made available by TwinCAT 3 including:
Visual Studio-enhanced programming environment
IEC 61131-3 3rd edition update
C/C++ programming options
