Does anyone know of any solutions to enable unit testing of PLC code similar to what's available in the software engineering world? Basically something that would enable you to run a series of tests through the logic of your code checking for outcomes. Preferably run in a PC environment from a script file producing an output log.

These things are available for many PLC brands. Which one are you using?

Omron have CX-Simulator which operates as a virtual PLC with CX-Programmer.
Other PLC manufacturers have similar packages.
