The MathWorks Simulink PLC Coder

Simulink PLC Coder, from The MathWorks, is a tool that generates IEC 61131 structured text for programmable logic controller (PLC) and programmable automation controller (PAC) devices. With Simulink PLC Coder, engineers can automatically generate code for industrial control systems, including closed-loop and supervisory control applications. Simulink PLC Coder enables Model-Based Design for manufacturing and power generation equipment controlled by PLCs and PACs. Simulink PLC Coder is available now. U.S. list prices start at $10,000.
