Visio to PLC
« on: January 16, 2010, 04:32:34 PM »
I have the idea. Mostly we document PLC projects using Visio. I mean states - transitions - alarms. Let say your PLC is IEC 61131-3 compatible or you can save a program (export - import or save as) as XML file.  It is possible to create a single PLC program module as a Visio page template (a flow chart with a data). Then you can build any complicated program as a set of Visio pages???
This Visio page template can be use to program all PLCs which agree with the condition above. What do you think about my idea?
For today I know how to for RSlogix5000, Step7, CX-0ne, Beckhoff and Wago.

You are absolutely right bdlftth. Actually, I wanted to work with you because my job right now is about machine coding. I'm not familiar with PLC, my specialty is Autodesk software. Getting bored? why not watching youtube gta 5 funny moments on your mobile phone. playing block craft 3d for pc will also lessen your boredom. What are you waiting for? Get up and start your day with these amazing suggestion.

This Visio page template can be use to program all PLCs which agree with the condition that you mentioned. Thus, I didn't see any problem with that.
