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. You will find a complete list of supported platforms and corresponding SoftPLC systems on the "Details" tab.
 

CODESYS end users

Can focus fully on creating applications: CODESYS Control is implemented on all available CODESYS controllers (refer to the CODESYS Device Directory at codesys.net). 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. Add-on functionalities are included, such as integrated support of real-time Ethernet systems, as well as the option of licensing the visualization and motion control products, which are optional in CODESYS. You will find a complete list of supported platforms for these SoftPLC systems on the "Details" tab.
For more information about products relating to CODESYS Control, please refer directly to the CODESYS Store or the brochure "CODESYS for Users".

Advantages of the available SoftPLC systems

  • Programming with the standard CODESYS Development System: The latest versions, features, and patches are always available for both the development environment and the SoftPLC.
  • System extensibility with all add-on products in the CODESYS Store
  • Integrated fieldbus support exclusively via software, especially for Ethernet fieldbuses:
    • EtherCAT master
    • PROFINET controller / device
    • EtherNet/IP scanner / adapter
    • Extensibility via gateway terminals or PCI adapters
  • Depending on the device, other add-on functionalities are integrated or available as an option, such as the OPC UA Server, CANopen / J1939 / Modbus support, CODESYS WebVisu, CODESYS TargetVisu, CODESYS SoftMotion, and CODESYS SoftMotion CNC+Robotics.

How can you obtain and implement CODESYS Control?

As an end user, for example in machine and plant construction

CODESYS Control is implemented on all available CODESYS controllers (refer to the CODESYS Device Directory at codesys.net) ist CODESYS Control implementiert. 
Alternative: Purchase CODESYS Control SL single licenses for standard device platforms from the CODESYS Store

As a manufacturer of programmable devices

Get CODESYS Control directly from the CODESYS Group starting at a purchase volume of 50 single licenses per year. The purchase of the CODESYS Runtime Toolkit is a requirement.
Alternative for standard platforms: Purchase of CODESYS Control SL single licenses from the CODESYS Store
