Programming in graphical languages (LD, FBD)
GEB Automation IDE provides a graphical editor ("Geb Graphical Editor")
for programming in two IEC-61131-3 graphical languages:
The editor can be invoked on an existing file, with extension *.fbd:
double click over it in the Project Explorer, or explicitly:
Right Click->Open With->Geb Graphical Editor.
- Ladder Diagram (LD)
- Function Block Diagram (FBD)
The editor features a Palette (right side) which includes:
All graphical elements from the palette can be dragged into the graph.
- Select and Connection tools. They switch among the two modes of operation: selecting (creating, moving, editing) elements, and making connections between them.
- Elements allows to add graphical elements to a Diagram, as Coil, Contacts, Function or Function Blocks invocations (Blocks), Variable-refs, Labels, Jumps, Connectors, etc
The Ladder Variables view, located below the editor, allows to edit the variables for the current graphical POU,
and to change the POU name and type.
