IEC 61131-3

Now there’s always a need to standardize in the automation market. By using the IEC 61131-3 Standard you can migrate between PLC platforms simply and easily. I find it great that most PLC manufacturers are adopting the standard and generally are updating to include all of the languages involved. I’ll be writing a post soon to discuss which languages I believe are the best for what applications and also what my personal favorite PLC platforms are.
