CODESYS (Controlled Development System) is the most widely used Soft-PLC development environment with more than 2 million installations. CODESYS 2.3, as defined by IEC 61131-1 norm, includes 5 programming languages IL (Instruction List), ST (Structured Text), LD (Ladder Diagram), FBD (Function Block Diagram), SFC (Sequential Function Chart).
The potential offered by the versatility of CODESYS environment combined with SENECA high performance hardware gives the highest reliability even for the most complex systems. PLC as Z-TWS5 with CODESYS 2.3 offers a reliable PLC plus a complete Windows CE operating system for the best data management.
No cost for user licenses, easy project migration to dissimilar hardware and compiler not levied on hardware resources make CODESYS suitable for two kinds of development in factory automation:
• for plannning and building programs according to IEC 61131-3 that have to be performed on PC's for automatic machine controllers;
• for programming industrial control systems such as Z-TWS5 ensuring maximum reliability and an excellent quality/price ratio introducing Z-TWS5 like a viable alternative to traditional PLC with proprietary software.
In order to improve and optimize the system configuration time, SENECA provides SENECA CODESYS Package: a free software suite with different configuration tools and an object oriented programming software. This suite includes a set of information for all SENECA devices giving user a rapid project configuration with all SENECA devices (and relative tags) like I/O's, converters, network analyzers, etc. With Z-NET4, an object oriented programming software, the user can build the project and load it into the CPU greatly reducing the code strings programming time. For the best data management SENECA provides a customizable supervision interface loaded into CODESYS IDE and reachable via webserver.
CODESYS ensures full support for VPN-Iot networks supporting most industrial fieldbus. This feature guides the choice when defining the controller and relative IDE for system setup.
