CODESYS Control

CODESYS Control is the corresponding runtime system to the CODESYS Development System. It converts an intelligent device into a controller that can be programmed in the IEC 61131-3 languages with the CODESYS Development System. 

For more information about technical properties and functions, please see here.

Device manufacturers

Can adapt the CODESYS Control runtime system to almost any platform or requirement. 
The CODESYS Runtime Toolkit is required for this purpose. The modular structure and the scalability of the system provide a wide range of possibilities for customizing the runtime system to individual system structures. As long as your devices are based on standard platforms, you can also install the SoftPLC systems available in the CODESYS Store. Under "Available SoftPLC systems for standard platforms" you will find a list of all supported platforms and the corresponding SoftPLC systems.
 

CODESYS users

Can focus fully on creating applications: Millions of CODESYS-compatible single devices and over 1,000 different device types from more than 500 manufacturers offer you a large range of hardware for your automation projects. CODESYS Inside offers a selection of manufacturers that offer CODESYS-compatible devices. CODESYS Control is implemented on all available CODESYS controllers. Furthermore, ready-to-use SoftPLC systems with CODESYS Control, which you install on the devices yourself, are available for different standard platforms in the CODESYS Store.

Depending on the license purchased, additional features are included, such as integrated support for real-time Ethernet systems and the option to license the visualization and motion control products also available in CODESYS. See “Available SoftPLC systems on standard platforms " for a list of all supported platforms for these SoftPLC systems. You can find more information about the CODESYS Control products directly in the CODESYS Store or in the brochure „CODESYS for Users“. Detailed information on the licensing of these SoftPLCs can be found in the CODESYS Store.
