Structured Text

Structured text is a high-level programming language for programmable logic controllers (PLCs) in industrial control systems. It is used to configure and program sequential control and event-driven machine processes. The syntax elements of structured text are similar to Pascal with the addition of some keywords unique to PLC programming standards. This language format has both textual and graphical representations that can be displayed within a single integrated development environment (IDE). Its direct integration with ladder logic makes it easier for engineers involved in automation to transition between different programming languages, allowing them to select the most suitable approach based on project requirements.
