One aspect of PLCopen's work is the certification of programming systems that are IEC 61131-3 compliant (Logic) and in compliance with the requirements stated in the PLCopen Motion Control, Safety, OPC UA and XML specifications.
PLCopen Logic certification
The starting point for the certification of IEC 61131-3 compliant programming systems is a document titled "PLCopen Guideline: Compliance Testing & Certification".
PLCopen Motion Control certification
The rules for compliance and certification are in fact a self-certifcation. The results are reviewed by PLCopen before certification is granted and published on this website. Certified companies (PLCopen members only) are allowed to use the PLCopen Motion Control logo.
