How to program systems using IEC logic | The Engineer The Engineer
Any controller that is IEC compliant supports these as a “firmware” library, that is, the code for these is pre-written into a prom or flash ram on the device. Additionally, manufacturers can supply libraries of their own functions. Once variables have been declared globally, they can then be used in any POU by being re-declared as “External”. All user-declared POUs, regardless of type, can be written in any of the five languages.
Sequential Function charts allow complex algorithms to be executed using a series of “steps” and “transitions”.
Bristol Babcock is a leading supplier of measurement and control instruments and systems with offices throughout the world. External Once variables have been declared globally, they can then be used in any POU by being re-declared as “External”.
Instruction List is most popular for relatively simple, yet frequently used, algorithms. If shown as Structured Text, it looks like this: 1113-3 and outputs between the blocks iev wired graphically using a mouse. System tasks are triggered to execute once on specific events within the running program. Bringing It All Together. Function Blocks are pre-programmed calculations that accept numerous inputs, and can return several outputs. Cyclic tasks run at programmer-declared intervals.
The standard library of IEC consists mostly of Functions.
Notice that Input and Output variables can be assigned initial values. Using Structured text, the code above is written as: Program Organization Units POUs Functions Functions are pre-programmed calculations that accept numerous inputs, but return only one output.
These POUs are reusable within a program and iev be stored in user-declared libraries for import into other control programs. A brief example would be: Users can also develop their own libraries, which can include calls to the IEC standard library and any applicable manufacturers’ libraries.
Variable Declarations Variable Types All variables used within a project must be declared, either locally to a POU or globally to the project.
Any use of a Function Block is referred to as an “instance” of that block. Advancing Automation eBook Series. The Function Block Diagram Language allows control algorithms to be developed graphically by inserting the program units called Functions and Function Blocks into a control program. This declaration would occur in the “System Resource” section 1131-3 the project.
Regardless of the type of POU or Language used, all variables must be declared. Cyclic Cyclic tasks run at programmer-declared intervals. Complex algorithms can be developed using multiple branching techniques.

Its purpose is to generate a Boolean ifc the coil “Output” at regular intervals when started by a Boolean variable the relay “Run” going high, and it can be stopped by another Boolean variable the relay “Reset” going high: Functions are pre-programmed calculations that accept numerous inputs, but return only one output.
This article was written and provided by Bristol Babcock. An important consideration here is that, if a firmware library is used, the device that receives the program must support that library.
Additionally, user-declared variable types can be created that are “structures”, or combinations of several variable types.
This could be done by anything within the program.
