Siemens SIMATIC STEP 7 Support from Simulink PLC Coder

Use STEP 7 and Simulink to design and test control systems.

SIMATIC® STEP® 7 integrates with the Simulink® modeling environment, enabling you to design and implement a control system on PLCs. With Simulink, you can model and simulate a controller, and generate IEC 61131 structured text for import into STEP 7.

Simulink and STEP 7 integration lets you:

  • Model and simulate your control system using Simulink models and Stateflow® charts
  • Detect design errors early and reduce physical prototyping time and cost
  • Generate IEC 61131 structured text from the same control algorithm model (using Simulink PLC Coder™ targeted for STEP 7)
  • Download the structured text into STEP 7 (using Simulink PLC Coder)

You can then work within STEP 7 to deploy the control application on your PLC.
