<h4 style="font-weight: normal; line-height: 17pt; margin: 20px;">
IEC 61499 defines a domain specific modeling language for developing distributed industrial control solutions.
<br>IEC 61499 extends IEC 61131-1 by improving the encapsulation of software components for increased re-usability,
<br>providing a vendor independent format, and simplifying support for controller to controller communication.
<br>Its distribution functionality and the inherent support for dynamic reconfiguration provide
<br>the required infrastructure for Industrie 4.0 and industrial IoT applications.</h4>
