Item description for IEC 61131-3: Programming Industrial Automation Systems: Concepts and Programming Languages, Requirements for Programming Systems, Aids to Decision-Making Tools by Karl-Heinz John...

This practical book gives a comprehensive introduction to the concepts and languages of the new standard IEC 61131 used to program industrial control systems. A summary of the special requirements in programming industrial automation systems and the corresponding features in the IEC 61131-3 standard makes it suitable for students as well as PLC experts. The material is presented in an easy-to-understand form using numerous examples, illustrations and summary tables. There is also a purchaser's guide and a CD-ROM containing two reduced but functional versions of programming systems. These increase the value of the book for PLC programmers and for those in charge of purchasing software in industrial companies.

Reviews - What do customers think about IEC 61131-3: Programming Industrial Automation Systems: Concepts and Programming Languages, Requirements for Programming Systems, Aids to Decision-Making Tools?

Good book  Jul 8, 2008
Book is quite simple, not a lot of examples. Do not know anything better though.

 
Well written  Jul 13, 2006
I am a PLC instructor, I use the book by Lewis, this book by John is a supplement and may replace my current text for class. I like the way the examples seem so real and easy to follow.

The book is well written and doesn't have quirky typos like the other book does.

 
Not a good source for specifics of IEC 61131-3.  Jun 29, 2001
This book is more of a general programming guide using IEC 61131-3. That's o.k. except the name implies an emphasis on industrial automation systems yet many of the examples in the book aren't examples of the typical IA system.

I was hoping for more of a detailed outline of each language in IEC 61131-3. I would have liked to have seen a composite list of each type of block available in FBD. Instead, this book uses examples of different aspects of each language and how you can leverage the power as a whole.

As a general programming book it's average. The authors try to convey what they feel is a better way to program but to each his own. It's not the way *I* program.

I don't see a real value in this book (especially for the price) because a person who is tasked to program in one of the IEC 1131 languages had better already have a good idea how to build code.
