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. It also provides guidelines for the implementation of these languages in programmable controller systems and their programming support environments (PSEs).
IEC 61131-4 should be consulted for other aspects of the application of programmable controller systems.
NOTE Neither IEC 61131-3 nor this technical report explicitly addresses safety issues of programmable controller systems or their associated software. The various parts of IEC 61508 should be consulted for such considerations.
