CODESYS Control is a runtime system for industrial processors and can be implemented on nearly any embedded platform, thus providing programmability according to IEC 61131-3 with CODESYS. As CODESYS Control has a component-based structure, it can be adapted to meet the specific requirements of different embedded devices. This also includes the support of different operating systems for embedded and PC-based devices. CODESYS Control runs on hundreds of device platforms in the most different applications around the world.
3S-Smart Software Solutions is one of the world´s leading software manufacturers in the automation industry. The company´s main focus is the development and distribution of CODESYS, the well-known IEC 61131-3 integrated development environment (IDE) for controller applications and CODESYS Control, the platform independent runtime system. The CODESYS-Platform also offers integrated product extensions for the use and configuration of fieldbuses like CAN/CANopen and realtime Ethernet such as EtherCAT or Profinet, for the generation and display of professional user interfaces (visualizations) and for complex motion control tasks, e. g. for CAMs or Safety appliations. All kinds of DIN 61508 Safety applications for SIL2 and SIL3 can also be developed with integrated and certified Safety solutions.
More than 350 manufacturers of programmable embedded or PC-based devices use CODESYS as their programming interface. Thus, the IDE is used for the most different industrial applications, for example for the automation of production and mobile machines but also for power generation systems. This allows device users to develop specific application software for their purposes – without affecting the system.
