Siemens' CPU 1518 ODK advanced controller and Simatic ODK 1500S engineering package are designed to 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. Features include work memory 4 MB code and 20 MB data and 1 ns bit operation time. It also includes a Profinet I/O controller and I/O device and an integrated Profinet interface with two ports for line structure. Integrated technology functions include motion, control, counting, and measuring.
