We appreciate our loyal OptoBlog subscribers and want you to be the first to hear about important product news. So, we're excited to announce on February 4, 2019 that the groov EPIC system will include IEC 61131-3 programming options.
With these new programming options added to the existing flowchart and custom user-written options, you can program EPIC using a variety of languages you already may know, while taking advantage of the EPIC's extended capabilities for automation and industrial internet of things (IIoT) applications. All IEC 61131-3 standard languages are supported by groov EPIC, including Function Block Diagram (FBD), Structured Text (ST), Sequential Function Charts (SFC), and Ladder Diagram (LD).
Adding IEC 61131-3-compliant programming options means you can:
- Pick the best software tool for your application
- Mix and match several software tools to build control and IIoT solutions in one unified platform
- Leverage existing employee knowledge in IEC 61131-3 programming methods—even decades-old ladder logic
