This part of IEC 61131, which is a technical report, applies to the programming of programmable controller systems using the programming languages defined in IEC 61131-3. The scope of IEC 61131-3 is applicable to this part.
This document provides
a) guidelines for the application of IEC 61131-3,
b) guidelines for the implementation of IEC 61131-3 languages for programmable controller systems,
c) programming and debugging tool (PADT) recommendations. For further information IEC 61131-4 describes other aspects of the application of programmable controller systems, e.g. electromagnetic compatibility or functional safety.
NOTE Neither IEC 61131-3 nor this document explicitly addresses safety issues of programmable controller systems or their associated software. The various parts of IEC 61508 can be consulted for such considerations.
