Bastian Solutions Discusses Programming Multiple Languages at ProMat 2015 Next Week


Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/18/2015 -- Next week at ProMat 2015 in Chicago, Bastian Solutions will discuss how machine builders want ease-of-use, support for multiple programming languages, ability to reuse code, global acceptance along with traditional PLC functions.

Reviewed in a recent issue of System Integration News, sponsored by Bastian Solutions, support for multiple programming languages is important to OEMs and suppliers alike, as is the closely related feature of support for a wide variety of instruction types. Kevin Alexander, Unified Support Manager for Bastian Solutions, noted, "At minimum, programming software should support ladder logic, structured text, and sequential function charts (SFCs)."

For machines operating very sequentially, SFCs provide a very robust and streamlined method for controlling a sequence of operation, while providing easy troubleshooting. Structured text is best for programming communication sockets as it is much cleaner and more efficient than ladder logic. A wide variety of pre-built instructions allows a programmer to mitigate complexity and streamline code, and custom-built instructions that can be reused within the code should also be available.

System Integration News, a weekly e-newsletter, sponsored by Bastian Solutions brings important and interesting information to those in the material handling, automation, goods-to-person systems, wearable AR technology, supply chain software, and robotics. From best practices to industry data, this weekly communique reports trend data, process improvement, and technology evaluations and profitability.

Bastian Solutions will be exhibiting at ProMat 2015 (Booth #3953) held March 23-26 at Chicago's McCormick Place. For more information, go to:
