AR Advantages behind IEC61131 programming

September 30, 2014

Hi I’m Adam Ring with Innovative IDM. Now people often wonder what is this IEC61131-3 programming all about. Well I often wonder that myself and actually what this is, is an international standard of programming languages. It’s made up of 5 different languages, sequential function chart, structured text, instruction list, ladder diagram, and function block diagram.
Now why would we want a suit of 5 different languages that’s standardized? Well if you’re an engineer or programmer you can go to school and learn these languages one time, get really good at them, and then regardless of who’s hardware you’re actually using for a particular machine design, if its programmed using this suit of languages then you already know how to program that particular hardware. So whether its vendor A, Vendor B, vendor C, if it follows that IEC61131 standard you already know how to program it.
So what that does for you is allows you to reuse code. You develop something that works really, really well, and you save it. And if you use that on this project and you need to use it on your next project you don’t need to rewrite it each time. It also gives you the flexibility to be able to pick the language that best suits the task that you’re trying to accomplish. So if you’re trying to do a whole lot of math structured text might be a really good way to go. If you doing some basic Boolean logic then maybe ladder diagram would be the best thing or if you’re trying to do a sequence of different events the sequential function chart might be the best. So whatever it is you pick the best language to get the job done and it’s going to save you time and money by not having to rewrite code each time, you’re not gonna have to learn a bunch of new languages for different hardware, and at the end of the day it makes you more valuable as a programmer by knowing how to use it.

Customer Appreciation Events are Valuable and Fun

May 17, 2013

Things got a little silly later in the evening at our customer appreciation event in Houston. Yes, we had a invisible pole OMRON sensors for limbo dancing. Yes, Alberto from our H-Town office ate a fajita in one bite. Yes, OMRON, SMC and Yaskawa helped pay for the margarita machines and the food. Yes, Todd Mueller stood sentinel over the strawberry margarita mixer. And yes, there were lots and lots of prizes. But the best thing about the event was that everyone had a great time and our employees and customers spent leisure time together. Customer appreciation events are great. If your business doesn’t appreciate customers regularly, what are you thinking?
