PLC development under Mac OS X


Thread Starter


dear listers,
as undoubtely many of you are aware, the new Macintosh OS is based upon BSD Unix foundation . This should result over time in an increased availability of automation software designed originally for Unix. Long ago i was aware that a generic PLC development program existed, that is by adding a PLC specific module you could develop, test and commission programs for that brand. The software was available on the Mac classic OS, but also on other OSes (it was then marketed by Eplan). May anyone suggest a PLC developing environment running under Unix (in my specific case for Omron development, but anything else is OK too), or that can be compiled under it. I am not talking about a soft plc like LinuxPLC (by the way it should be portable to OS X)?
