PLC Code Generation Basics

Generate structured text

The basic steps for code generation are:

  • Create a model or open an existing model.

  • Configure the model for code generation by selecting the solver.

  • Configure PLC Coder code generation options.

The PLC Coder configuration parameters provide several options for the code generation.
