B&R system integration services include support for integrating the B&R Automation Studio Target for Simulink® into workflows that apply Model-Based Design. In addition, B&R offers services to assist with the development of machine models and closed-loop controllers based on MATLAB®, Simulink, and Stateflow®.
The B&R hardware platform fully supports code generated by Simulink Coder®, Embedded Coder™, and Simulink PLC Coder™.
B&R Automation Studio Target for Simulink and Simulink PLC Coder enable users to bring their Simulink or Stateflow models to the B&R PLC or industrial computer quickly and efficiently. Algorithms modeled in Simulink are translated into PLC source code (ANSI-C or IEC 61131-3 ST); integrated into B&R's development environment, Automation Studio; and transferred to the PLC or industrial computer at the push of a single button. This approach helps users to significantly cut down on development time to set up prototypes (on-target rapid prototyping).
Furthermore, full machine models created in Simulink and Stateflow can be installed on the real-time system to emulate machine behavior (hardware-in-the-loop simulation).
Typical users include:
