Abstract

Standards conformance and integrated development are key features of modern automation systems. This paper introduces an integrated development environment (IDE) that enables high-speed EtherCAT communication and standardized motion programming. On the basis of our previous work, we extended and customized open-source software components to provide a completely open architecture IDE, that is compliant with the relevant industrial standards. The major components of our IDE are IEC 61131-3 and PLCopen TC6 compliant editor, EtherCAT communication support, and PLCopen TC2 compliant motion control library. Since the whole procedures from the project setup to run-time monitoring are highly automated, the presented IDE allows developers to integrate coordinated motion with control logics seamlessly and efficiently.
