Tech Han anybody experience in Beckhoff TwinCat 3 PLC programing?

I started working with a KUKA robot that has an Beckhoff plc running in the background. Would need some help with the ST code there

I'm working with the same sort of setup. Don't have much experience with ST, but I would suggest checking out the following, which were helpful to me:

TwinCAT 3 Tutorial
ST on TwinCAT 3 Video Tutorial (multiple episodes)
ST Tutorial

It's hard to find good intro materials, but still worth googling. For additional help check out Robot Forum.

I would start on KUKA's site since your questions would be specific to it, while ST is general and the same for all PLC vendors (IEC 61131-3 standard).

Does the KUKA code employ Beckhoff's Numerical Control option? If so, you will see things under the "NC" heading in the Project Tree (within Visual Studio). The NC implementation is specific to Beckhoff and comes in ~3 varieties, I think the lowest level being a basic G-code interpreter for 3-axes.

All things Siemens and Beckhoff. Please let it be Beckhoff.
