Reducing development time and cost with standardized motion programming. As industrial automation systems become increasingly complex, software development time and engineering expenses can exceed all other development hurdles. PLCopen offers standard, open motion control function blocks based on the IEC 61131 languages to create efficient, flexible code that is vendor- and product-independent. PLCopen Motion Control reduces software development time while maintaining a portable and easily upgradeable code base for future applications. The result is a shorter time to market with greater profits and future growth that is independent of the hardware platform.
