Modicon libraries start with our general purpose library (GPL). This library provides access to Schneider Electric’s extensive range of connected products (motor control and power management) via a number of industrial networks, standard control modules for indicators, motors and valves and common process libraries and sequencing blocks to enable rapid engineering of your automation system. The library also contains functionality to link with our Wonderware software offers of historian and batch. The general purpose library is available freely from this website for use on any project.
Modicon libraries also include additional libraries (available for purchase). These include libraries for Modicon only (HVAC control, Gas flow calculation), functional libraries (power control, energy management, advanced process control) and vertical libraries (water). These libraries build on the capabilities of the GPL but provide more specific control modules and some process control templates.
