Eclipse 4diac™ provides an open source infrastructure
for distributed industrial process measurement and control systems
based on the IEC 61499 standard. 4diac includes:

IDE 4diac-IDE provides a development environment for developing distributed industrial processes measurements and control systems Development
RTE 4diac runtime environment (FORTE) provides a device indepent execution of IEC 61499 control application Runtime
LIB 4diac's function block library provides you with a set of reusable function blocks reducing the effort of application development Function Block
SYS Example systems showing the features of IEC 61499 and 4diac Example

IEC 61499 defines a domain specific modeling language for developing distributed industrial control solutions.
IEC 61499 extends IEC 61131-1 by improving the encapsulation of software components for increased re-usability,
providing a vendor independent format, and simplifying support for controller to controller communication.
Its distribution functionality and the inherent support for dynamic reconfiguration provide
the required infrastructure for Industrie 4.0 and industrial IoT applications.
