CODESYS VIRTUAL PLC

Industry 5.0 the next industrial revolution

CODESYS Virtual PLC has no hardware requirements

CODESYS has been offering hardware-independent Soft PLCs for over 20 years and continuously they have been expanding their products. Today, CODESYS provides hardware-independent Soft PLCs with and without real-time for Windows, as well as Soft PLC solutions for Linux x86 and ARM-based systems.

The CODESYS Virtual PLC is a more advanced product towards the future. It allows the CODESYS Soft PLC to run in a virtual environment without the need for a device. Instead, the device gets replaced by containers and hypervisor technologies.

The CODESYS Virtual PLC can be installed multiple times on a device and has no hardware requirements. It is connected to the Automation World via virtual LAN. CODESYS is currently delivering CODESYS Controls in Docker containers to pilot customers. The product will be available for purchase in the CODESYS North America Store soon.

CODESYS will soon release solutions based on hypervisor technology, for example to easily install CODESYS Control on a server.

ADVANTAGES

  • A significant reduction in costs and effort for procurement,
    • wiring,
    • maintenance,
    • rolling out applications and device administration.
       
  • The control cabinet is no longer occupied by one or more controls.
     
  • Power supply units and their wiring are no longer necessary.
     
  • OT and IT merge completely
    Instead of procuring and installing several controllers, it is sufficient to load an available IT platform in the network with virtual controllers and to manage them centrally - performed by IT specialists instead of automation specialists.
