PARDO, Xoán C; DIAZ, José C  and  FERREIRO, Ramón. A New Application for the Emulation of Programmable Logic Controllers. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2006, vol.17, n.4, pp.29-34. ISSN 0718-0764.

The main functionalities and characteristics of a new application for the emulation of Programmable Logic Controllers are described in this paper. The objective of this work has been to design and implement an emulator including among others the following characteristics: to comply with the IEC 61131-3 standard, to allow remote access, to allow configuration of different instruction sets based on the use of catalogs, and to allow configuration of different hardware architectures. Open source technologies have been used for the implementation of the emulator and a graphic interface to be used by web browsers has been incorporated. This guaranties the portability and accessibility of the emulator.

Keywords : programmable logic controller; emulation; IEC 61131-3 standard; open source.
