This language is similar in some ways to more popular programming languages such as C. This course will show your students real examples of routines that are being written in structured text, and give them time to practice writing the code.
At the completion of this course, students will be able to:
Utilize the tag databses to declare variables for use in a program
Set up User Defined DataTypes (UDT’s) for use in the tag databases
Utilize ‘Operators’ in structured text to manipulate variables
