WAGO Incorporates Manufacturer-Independent CODESYS V3 Automation Software into the Engineering Process

Open standards provide interfaces for co-creation, collaboration and partnerships and offer the basis for many successful projects. That’s why WAGO is incorporating manufacturer-independent CODESYS V3 automation software into its portfolio, now offering it along with the proven e!COCKPIT engineering environment.

The Benefits for You:

  • Flexible engineering based on an open industry standard
  • Greater interoperability and performance with more functions
  • Ease of switching from existing e!COCKPIT projects to CODESYS V3
  • Availability for select PFC200 Controllers since the end of November 2022

Benefits of Codesys V3

Manufacturer independence: Use the same IDE* to program hardware from different manufacturers and benefit from seamless collaboration among different systems.

Enhanced connectivity: Take advantage of the numerous connectivity options offered by CODESYS in combination with WAGO controllers. Supported options include Modbus, EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP etc.

A free programming environment: Start programming directly, without initial expenses for software or licenses for the IDE, and enjoy the benefit of easy handling.

A large community: In addition to WAGO Support, you benefit from the support and know-how of the large, active Codesys community.

A large number of functions: Discover the benefits of many new functions and technologies, including project comparisons, numerous integrated fieldbus configurators, node scan and much more.

The Key to Openness

We are consistently working towards open, secure technology, so we will make CODESYS V3 available for our control solutions.

Transitioning to CODESYS V3

Dealing with CODESYS 2.3

Please note that the software manufacturer CODESYS has discontinued or limited support for CODESYS 2.3 (Learn more here). Therefore, WAGO recommends the open CODESYS 3.5 software.

Benefit from the open CODESYS 3.5 platform, modern controllers and visualizations, cloud connection and many other advantages for new installations. Due to changing requirements in the context of advancing digitalization, examining the switchover in existing applications is sensible. We’ll be happy to support you with a custom solution.

Migration Guide (with e!COCKPIT)

Want to transition your existing e!COCKPIT project to CODESYS V3? The Migration Guide takes you through transition step by step. The comprehensive Migration Guide contains detailed instructions for the transition and supports you in converting fieldbus configurators to the CODESYS standard – the de facto industry standard for configurators.

Your Benefits:

  • The IEC code is retained one-to-one
  • The visualization is completely reusable
  • The familiar WAGO libraries are also available for CODESYS V3

Compatible Controllers

PFC 200

WAGO’s PFC200 Series Controllers are ideal for various applications in industrial, process and building automation.

Available for CODESYS V3 since November 2022

Compact Controller 100

The Compact Controller 100 is a smaller controller with integrated I/Os that is perfect for smaller automation solutions. Thanks to its design as a DIN-rail built-in installation device per DIN 43880, the new controller can also be mounted on small distribution boards. The I/O unit is housed in a compact enclosure along with the controller, so no additional space is required for extra control components.
