Version 1.3 2022-04-10 ------------------------------------------------------------ Ladder diagram (LD) is a graphical programming language that has evolved from electrical wiring diagrams for relay control systems used with programmable controllers (PLC) as described in the international standard IEC-61131-3. A LD program enables the programmable controller to test and modify data by means of standardized graphic symbols. These symbols are laid out in networks in a manner similar to a ``rung'' of a relay ladder logic diagram. This library provides TikZ symbols to draw high quality ladder diagrams. All standard and some non-standard symbols are possible, including all kinds of contacts, coils and blocks. I decided to write this package, despite of the fact that there is available another package named `ladder' that also uses TikZ to typeset ladder diagrams, because that package seems to lack support for blocks. The tikz-ladder, on the contrary, supports all features described in IEC-61131-3, namely, blocks (for functions and function blocks), contacts and coils. ------------------------------------------------------------ If you are interest in generating the documentation departing from tikz-ladder-doc.tex you are going to need pgfmanual-en-macros available at https://mirrors.ctan.org/graphics/pgf/contrib/sa-tikz/doc/macros/pgfmanual-en-macros.tex ------------------------------------------------------------

## tikz-ladder – Draw ladder diagrams using TikZ

The `tikz-ladder` package contains a collection of
symbols for typesetting ladder diagrams (PLC program) in
agreement with the international standard IEC-61131-3/2013.
It includes blocks (for representing functions and function blocks)
besides contacts and coils. It extends the circuit library of
TikZ and allows you to draw a ladder
diagram in the same way as you would draw any other circuit.
