  1. Dear Sir, In order to help people to learn Structured Text programming I have written and public the book "PLC Controls with Structured Text (ST): IEC 61131-3 and best practice ST programming” The book can be used for all PLC brands, including CODESYS, Delta PLC, Beckhoff and Siemens   Get the book in English, Spanish, Arabic or Danish versions Used for higher educations in Denmark More than 1000 sold world wide! The book provides systematically by describing the basic programming, including tips/advices and 25-years practical experiences from the author.   CONTENTS - Background, advantage and challenge when ST programming - Syntax and fundamental ST programming - Widespread guide to reasonable naming of variables - CTU, TOF, TON, CASE, STRUCT, ENUM, ARRAY, STRING - Guide to split-up into program modules and functions - More than 90 PLC code examples - FIFO, RND, 3D ARRAY and digital filter - Examples: From LADDER to ST programming - Guide to solve programming exercises     ISBN: 978-87-4300-241-3 (Paper Back, English Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4300-242-0 (Paper Back, black/white, English budget Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4300-636-7 (eBook, English Second Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4300-637-4 (eBook, English First Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4300-843-9 (Paper Back, Arabic Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4300-957-3 (Paperback, Monochrome Arabic Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4300-909-2 (Paper Back, Spanish Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4300-995-5 (Paper Back, black/white Spanish Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4309-932-1 (eBook, Spanish Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4300-097-6 (Paper Back, Danish Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4300-895-8 (O-Wire, Danish Edition) ISBN: 978-87-4300-517-9 (eBook, Danish Edition)  (Google the ISBN number to find bookshop near you)   FEEDBACK Daniel Berggren, Application & Support Manager, Lenze Nordic (Finland) “Truly a good one. We at Lenze use ST as main language and have invested in this book. We use it for both internal use as well as selected customers”   Students at AP Graduate in Automation Engineering (Denmark) "What could we have done without your book?"   Review: Edison yu, Work as an automation engineer (China) “Thank you for the great book, that will have people to write more powerful and useful PLC program. #PLCProgram,#LearningPLC”   Torben Kjaer, Managing director, Alsinger Integration (Australia) “Have been using the book for referencing on a number of occasions, great asset to have in your tool bag. Thank you Tom for creating this book, great benefit to the general industry” Peter Paul Dallmann, Automation system and industrial support (Denmark) “I have got your book and have to say that it is the first one that comes close to the point. For our in house training your book will become a “must read”.”   Pedro Jose Barretto, Bachelor Degree in Instrumentation Engineering (India) “I have purchased this book and am using it to train myself in PLC applications requirements having ST programming. A High recommend to Engineers involved with PLC controls, design and Applications using ST programming.”   Jakob Sagatowski, Software Engineer at European Southern Observatory (Germany) I just wanted to say that you are doing a great job with your education material for the field of automation. I've recommended your PLC-book for two friends that want to switch industry and start within the world of automation   Carsten Damkjær Jensen, Lecturer, University College Lillebælt (Denmark) “We use the book on training module (OB1) in Automation & Operation. Nice book about structured text programming for beginners/mid level”
  2. Why use Structured Text (ST) programming for your PLC applications? ST is a very flexible and universal programming language. ST program code can easily be copied between different PLC types and be sent via e-mails as it is based on text and not graphics as the LADDER programming does.  The ST program code is similar to text sentences and work is carried out the same way as a word processor program (as e.g. Microsoft Word) which makes it easier to work on. Consequently, the same working methods are applied as in a word pro-cessor program.  Because of its very structured nature, ST is ideal for tasks based on complex math, code reuse or decision-making (e.g. automatic energy optimization, algorithms, data collection and regulation).  Having the experience with PLC Programming the transition to other programming languages within PLC Control and automation will be easier; i.e. programming ro-botics or Visual Basic Programming. Within later years still more companies have switched to ST Programming which is due to the fact that ST provides a series of advantages compared to the four other PLC programming languages (LAD, SFC, FDB and IL). These advantages are as follows:  - ST Programming code can relatively easy be copied between different PLC types. - It is the easiest PLC language for mathematical calculations, formulas and algorithms and large amounts of data (bigdata)  - PLC solutions are more demanding today than 20 years ago  - Many widespread PLC programming languages (C++, C#, PASCAL, VB) reminds very much of the ST program structure.  - The other PLC languages (LAD, SFC, and FBD) require that parts of them are programmed in ST.  - It takes up less space when the PLC code must be documented, described and printed compared to the other PLC languages.  - It is easiest PLC language to version control via comments in the program code or via GIT or Subversion  Reference: The book “PLC Controls with Structured Text (ST) - IEC 61131-3 and best practice ST programming”
