What is Codesys

CODESYS - The comprehensive software suite for automation technology

CODESYS is a software platform for industrial automation technology. The basis of the platform is the IEC-61131-3 programming tool "CODESYS Development System". It offers users comprehensive, integrated solutions for the convenient configuration of automation applications - with the aim of providing practical support in realizing their tasks.

Open interfaces on the one hand, the comprehensive security properties on the other and, last but not least, the convenient connection to a cloud-based administration platform make CODESYS a natural platform for Industry 4.0. Whether edge, fog or cloud controller - CODESYS enables project planning and simple data exchange in any IIoT networks.

With CODESYS, device manufacturers implement their own programmable or configurable automation components, which 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 basis of the success of CODESYS: The tool covers project planning / programming / operation on workstations as well as execution / debugging of application code on the controller or activation / evaluation of field devices.

Several million CODESYS-compatible individual devices, approx. 1,000 different device types from over 400 manufacturers, tens of thousands of CODESYS users worldwide prove: CODESYS is the leading, manufacturer-independent IEC-61131-3 programming tool.
