CODESYS® – a new development environment in Inventia telemetry modules

The MT-121 and MT-221 are the first devices in Inventia’s portfolio with CODESYS® support.

MT-151 HMI and MT-151 LED join Inventia products programmed in CODESYS!

What is Codesys® and why are we making this change?

CODESYS® is an integrated controller programming environment compliant with the international IEC 61131-3 standard. CODESYS® has extensive programming functionalities such as support for the most popular programming languages in automation (LD, FBD, SFC, ST, C), extensive code testing capabilities, ease of code portability between different architectures, and support for multiple communication protocols. The software is constantly being developed by the numerous PLC manufacturers’ community.

The ability to use several programming languages within a single project allows you to choose the best language for the task at hand, and the ability to monitor and push variables significantly facilitates diagnostics and testing of the functionality of the written program.

The visualization tool allows you to create screens presenting the state of a process as: animations, graphics, tables and charts. It is possible to set control values from the visualization level.

A wide range of available libraries allows to expand the functionality of the programming tool adequately to the user needs and the task at hand. The ability to define your own functions and function blocks significantly simplifies programming and makes the program itself more readable.

CODESYS® advantages:

  • IEC 61131-3 compliant – available languages include ST, LD, FBD, SFC, as well as C
  • Extensive diagnostic tools
  • Ability to expand individual functionalities by adding libraries
  • Ease of code portability between different programs
  • Built-in visualization tool with ready set of elements for the process monitoring and controlling
  • Ability to define custom functions and function blocks
  • Documentation tool
  • Support for multiple communication protocols

What does MT gain by using CODESYS® software?

  • Writing programs using the most popular programming languages in automation, such as Ladder Diagram (LD), Function Block Diagram (FBD), Structured Text (ST), or Sequential Function Chart (SFC). The possibility of using several programming languages within one project allows you to choose the best language for a given task.
  • Access to a rich set of ready-made libraries extending the functionality of the environment. This speeds up the development process and facilitates the development of advanced applications.
  • Compliance with the industry-widely accepted IEC 61131-3 standard provides an intuitive environment for new MT users.
  • An extensive debugging tool allows you to monitor and force variables, and thus easier testing of the written program either directly on the device or using simulator.
  • Possibility of using several programming languages within one project.
