People often ask if there is any documentation of books on the IEC 61131-3 PLC programming standard and/or GX IEC Developer. The answer is yes. And the question is where?

Design Considerations

When GX Developer is installed, 3 documents are also installed:

  • Beginners Manual
  • Reference Manual
  • What’s new?

What’s new is obvious, but the other 2 documents contain things like:

Beginners Manual:

  • Introduction to the IEC 61131-3 standard
  • Basic terms used in IEC 61131-3
  • The user interface
  • Getting started
  • Program examples

Reference Manual:

  • Installation
  • The user interface
  • Projects and objects
  • Parameters
  • Programming
  • Guided ladder editor
  • Diagnostics
  • Programming instructions
