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.
A traffic viewer with signal graph display and seamless support of automotive databases (Fibex, ARXML, DBC, LDF) makes it most flexible and practical.
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 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.
CODESYS is used to automate serial machines and special purpose machines for the production of all sorts of different goods and products around the world. In book or newspaper printing, in the furniture production industry or in the production of vehicle components – CODESYS is virtually everywhere.
CODESYS is the number one development system for ECUs in mobile machines. CODESYS controllers can be found in many construction machines, cranes, fork lift trucks and mining equipment.
CODESYS is used in industrial applications for power generation and distribution for example for the control of solar power plants and block heating plants, wind turbines or transformer stations.
For the development of special-purpose control devices which require on-site adaptation by the application engineer, CODESYS is the first choice development platform – e.g. for controllers in industrial compressors, industrial weighing and dosing and medical technology.
CODESYS is used for the automation of commercial buildings and private homes, for example for intelligent lighting control, shading or air conditioning for individual rooms or complete floors or for the management of entire building complexes.
