C++ is one of the most widely used programming languages, especially when it comes to hardware-oriented programming. The continual further development of C++, which is reflected in the further development of the compiler and tooling over the last few decades, is driven forward by an active developer community.

TwinCAT 3 C++ implements a real-time execution of C++ code on an Industrial PC. For programming, the widely used programming language C++ is supported, which is connected to the real-time via the TwinCAT SDK and CRT. Extensive debugging interfaces are supported by Visual Studio® and also supplemented by representations typical of real-time. As is usual in TwinCAT, access to declared input/output data areas is provided via ADS.

Features

  • extensive use of common C++ features, such as object orientation
  • use of the widely used Microsoft MSVC to compile the real-time code
  • true-to-cycle execution of the real-time code within the TwinCAT runtime
  • TwinCAT SDK and CRT for the programming and execution of the code within the real-time environment
  • modular software structure via the TcCOM concept as well as interfaces
  • real-time communication between C++ modules or from/to the PLC
  • online connection via the TwinCAT debugger
  • debugging via breakpoints, stepping, etc.
  • debugging and monitoring of variable values even at runtime without breakpoints
  • optional source code storage in the target system
  • exchange of the code via online change without stopping the target system
  • reading and writing access to variables via ADS
  • simple linking to source control tools by embedding in Microsoft Visual Studio®
