The Automation Technology Labs in Halle possess 2 different test beds. These test beds are heterogeneously controlled, combining both IEC 61131 and IEC 61499 Standards. This is to present feasible solutions for parallel existence of the Standards in Automation Systems. Furthermore, several systematic design approaches have been implemented.

a) FESTO- Modular Production System b) EnAS- Demonstrator
