CODESYS Automation Platform – Plug-Ins for the IEC 61131-3 programming tool CODESYS Development System

Development platform for automation tools based on the IEC 61131-3 programming tool CODESYS Development System


The CODESYS Automation Platform - A Development Platform for the Extension of the CODESYS Development System

Designed especially for manufacturers of automation devices or machine and plant builders, the CODESYS Automation Platform is used to extend the existing IEC 61131-3 programming tool CODESYS Development System by adding customized add-on functions under .NET.

The CODESYS Automation Platform is a complete application framework for creating development environments for industrial controller networks.


  • Extension of the IEC 61131-3 development environment CODESYS Development System by adding customized plugins such as manufacturer or application-specific programming editors, configurators or wizards, replacing existing plugins with customized implementations etc.
  • Implementation of standalone software tools for different automation tasks like the commissioning of drives, project documentation, the automatic creation of source code or the commissioning of controllers without the complete development system etc.



The CODESYS Automation Platform is a framework which offers features like:

  • Project database for the programmatic access to CODESYS projects
  • Compilers with code generators for the creation of symbol tables, cross references, parse trees and machine code
  • Online component for the extendable layer 7 communication with a CODESYS Runtime System
  • Administration of different plug-ins in different versions (installation, de-installation)
  • Numerous, easy to use service classes for example for the forward and backward compatible serialization of database objects
  • Access to application global settings
  • Extensive online resources


  • Development environment for .NET 4.0 (typically Microsoft Visual Studio from Version 2010)
  • At least Windows XP SP3 for products based on the CODESYS Automation Platform

The CODESYS Automation Platform is especially designed for manufacturers of customized devices programmable with CODESYS as well as for machine and plant builders.
