CODESYS is a software platform for industrial automation technology. The core of the platform is the IEC-61131-3 programming tool "CODESYS Development System". It offers users practice-oriented, integrated solutions for the convenient configuration of automation applications. The goal is to provide them with practical support for their daily tasks.

Open interfaces, comprehensive security features, and a convenient connection to a cloud-based administration platform make CODESYS a natural Industry 4.0 platform. Edge, fog or cloud controllers can be developed with CODESYS. Data exchange between any IIoT networks can also be carried out easily.

Device manufacturers use CODESYS to implement their own programmable or configurable automation components. For this purpose, they install a runtime system. Using the available product options, the functional scope of their device can be flexibly defined. The options include integrated products for visualization, coordinated motion control, and connection to fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet systems.

Millions of CODESYS-compatible single devices, over 1,000 different device types from more than 500 manufacturers, and tens of thousands of CODESYS end users across the globe all prove that CODESYS is the leading manufacturer-independent IEC 61131-3 programming tool.
