TwinCAT Support from Simulink PLC Coder

Use TwinCAT and Simulink to design and test control systems.

TwinCAT® 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 TwinCAT.

Simulink and TwinCAT 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 TwinCAT)
  • Download the structured text into TwinCAT (using Simulink PLC Coder)

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

Platform Support

Available on 64-bit Microsoft® Windows® only.
