B&R - System Integration Services

On-target rapid prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop systems based on Simulink Coder, Embedded Coder, or Simulink PLC Coder


B&R system integration services include support for integrating the B&R Automation Studio Target for Simulink® into workflows that apply Model-Based Design. In addition, B&R offers services to assist with the development of machine models and closed-loop controllers based on MATLAB®, Simulink, and Stateflow®.

The B&R hardware platform fully supports code generated by Simulink Coder®, Embedded Coder™, and Simulink PLC Coder™.

B&R Automation Studio Target for Simulink and Simulink PLC Coder enable users to bring their Simulink or Stateflow models to the B&R PLC or industrial computer quickly and efficiently. Algorithms modeled in Simulink are translated into PLC source code (ANSI-C or IEC 61131-3 ST); integrated into B&R's development environment, Automation Studio; and transferred to the PLC or industrial computer at the push of a single button. This approach helps users to significantly cut down on development time to set up prototypes (on-target rapid prototyping).

Furthermore, full machine models created in Simulink and Stateflow can be installed on the real-time system to emulate machine behavior (hardware-in-the-loop simulation).

Typical users include:

  • Developers in industrial automation who want to develop their algorithms in Simulink and then bring them to a real-time industrial target (PLC or industrial computer) as fast as possible (on-target rapid prototyping)
  • Innovative machine builders who want to use Model-Based Design to cut down on development time and expenses
  • Machine builders who want to emulate the behavior of their machine or line on a real-time target (hardware-in-the-loop simulation)



  • Automatic code generation based on Automation Studio Target for Simulink (based on Simulink Coder or Embedded Coder) or Simulink PLC Coder
  • Support on development of machine models
  • Closed-loop controller development
