CODESYS Control SL Extension Package

The CODESYS Control Extension Package enables the addition of numerous functions to all Linux-based SoftPLCs without the need for a complete runtime toolkit.

Starting with runtime version 4.4.0.0, the CODESYS Control Extension Package is included in the package of all Linux SoftPLCs free of charge.
Typical use cases are:

  • C code or API calls from the application.
  • Support of specific hardware features of a device, such as local I/Os, remanent data storage, start/stop switches
  • Provision and use of events for task calls
  • Provision of specific functions of the SoftPLC or the application, callable via PLC shell

This makes it much easier to use standard CODESYS Control runtime systems and customize them to use additional hardware features or integrate custom software components.

Object Oriented Programming in CODESYS Example Process Industry

- Using Structure Text

When having a project with changing requirements, traditional programming methods using ladder fall short and causes tons of modification to add a new feature to your PLC program.

Now with the most recent IEC-61131-3 standard features, Object Oriented Programming  (OOP) is introduced. With Object Oriented Programming (OOP) you can apply a very sophisticated and advanced programming methods to create a solid and advanced software infrastructure.

Object Oriented Programming concepts are used in the biggest programming languages like C++ / JAVA / C# and even Python.

CODESYS VISUALISATION - Essentials, News and Outlook

Control and Visualization on one Device

Visualization screens created in CODESYS can be displayed on a controller equipped with the CODESYS TargetVisu without needing any additional hardware. The screens are displayed directly on the internal or external display of the device.

Creation of professional visualization screens directly in the PLC programming environment with the CODESYS Development System – displayed on a target device, a PC or a web browser.

CODESYS OPC UA PubSub

Communication via the OPC UA Pub/Sub protocol provides, in addition to the Client/Server communication, also a possibility to exchange data between the subscribers of a network in compliance with the rules of the OPC UA Foundation. The structure of the data (DataSet) can be freely defined and is agreed in advance between the sender and the receiver. This eliminates the need to transport additional (meta)data. The data transfer takes place with the help of the OPC UA PubSub SL library via UDP/IP according to the rules defined for UADP.

The OPC UA PubSub SL library takes over the conversion of IEC data types into the corresponding OPC UA data types and back. The implementation thereby follows the profiles below:

  • Publisher: PubSub Publisher UADP Periodic Fixed Settings
  • Subscriber: PubSub Subscriber UADP Periodic Fixed Settings

CODESYS IIoT Library

The CODESYS product “IIoT Libraries SL” contains numerous libraries to support different communication protocols (for example, MQTT and HTTPS) and includes tools for encoding and decoding data structures (for example, JSON and XML). Furthermore, libraries with POUs for direct communication with cloud services of individual providers (AWS, Azure, etc.) are provided.

The components contained in the CODESYS IIoT Library package are ideally suited for communication in the IIoT environment.
