Distributed Automation Programming with IEC 61499 - EcoStruxure Automation Expert
Get started with programming distributed control systems with IEC 61499, hands on with programming real PLC's
IEC 61499 is a new domain specific programming and modeling paradigm for the design and development of truly distributed control systems for industrial automation.
In this course on IEC 61499 control system development, you will get hands-on training on building a simple distributed control application of a mechatronic system. You will first start with learning the basic building blocks of IEC 61499 and later on build a real application with three distributed controllers.
We will use the EcoStruxure Automation Expert tool by Schneider Electric.
Important Note: To get the full value out of our On-Line Training, we recommend you to contact your local Schneider Electric agency for a demo license of EcoStruxure Automation Expert. Flexbridge does not provide access to the tool used in this course.
