CODESYS is a software platform for industrial automation technology. The platform is based on the CODESYS Development System, an IEC 61131-3 programming tool. It provides end users with extensive integrated solutions for convenient project engineering of automation applications. The associated goal is to provide practice-oriented support for users in the implementation of their tasks.
Open interfaces on the one hand and comprehensive security features on the other hand make CODESYS the ideal Industry 4.0 platform. The engineering of edge, fog or cloud controllers and the exchange of data in IIoT networks is standard functionality in CODESYS
Device manufacturers use CODESYS for creating their own programmable and configurable automation components that they can scale with calculable effort thanks to the diverse functions of the system. Integrated products for the different levels of an automation system are the foundation of success for CODESYS. This tool covers project engineering, programming, operation on workstations, as well as execution, debugging of application code on the controller or drive, and evaluation of field devices.
Millions of CODESYS-compatible single devices, over 1,000 different device types from more than 400 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.
