Siemens new CPU 1518 ODK advanced controller and Simatic ODK 1500S engineering package streamline the configuration and functionality of high-level language programs, including C/CC++.

High-level language programs are generated in an Open Development Kit and are integrated into the Step 7 program of the controller. Existing codes, such as algorithms written in C/C++ and complex Simulink models, are automatically generated in the controller as well.

The engineering package includes the Eclipse open program development environment designed for real-time applications, including control functions and complex mathematical algorithms.

Additionally, ready-made function libraries are available for numerous applications, including wind power generation.

Siemens Digital Factory (DF) offers a comprehensive portfolio of seamlessly integrated hardware, software and technology-based services in order to support manufacturing companies worldwide in enhancing the flexibility and efficiency of their manufacturing processes and reducing the time to market of their products.
