Established in 1994 by Dieter Hess and Manfred Werner, 3S-Smart Software Solutions GmbH is the manufacturer of CODESYS, the leading hardware independent IEC 61131-3 development system under Windows for programming and creating controller applications.

With a branch in Beijing and distributors in the most important markets in Europe, America and Asia CODESYS is represented across the world.

|The company’s core product is the IEC 61131-3 Development System CODESYS. CODESYS is used in all sectors of the automation industry and in all sorts of different applications. Today, more than 300 manufacturers of intelligent automation devices have integrated CODESYS in their devices. Thousands of end users from all over the world use CODESYS for their daily work.


Industrial Development System

The CODESYS Development System is the heart of the CODESYS automation suite and the leading hardware-independent IEC 61131-3 tool under Windows for the creation of controller applications. Modern editors, debugging functions and integrated compilers allow for an easy handling of all engineering tasks. Using the CODESYS Automation Platform, the Development System can easily be extended to suit individual requirements.

Target Visualization

The CODESYS Visualization is fully integrated and executable  on all sorts of clients, for example in the PLC Development System, on a PLC, on an internet browser or on a remote PC. It enables users to create and animate professional user interfaces for testing, commissioning and servicing machines and plants.

Industrial Fieldbus

In addition to standard technologies like FDT, CODESYS Fieldbus supports all standard fieldbus systems, such as Profibus, CAN or realtime Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT, Profinet, EtherNET-IP or Sercos) with integrated connections. Protocol stacks for the most important fieldbus systems are available as portable CODEYSYS libraries. Due to the integration of these fieldbus configurators and protocols automation projects can be carried out much more efficiently.

Motion + CNC

Field-tested MotionControl components make CODESYS Motion + CNC a complete solution for motion tasks: CAM and a 3D CNC/DIN66025 editor allow for movement planning. Platform-independent library POUs for axis control (e. g. according to PLCopen), interpolation and transformation calculate the path during runtime on the controller.

Integrated Safety Extensions

CODESYS Safety provides integrated Safety extensions certified for SIL2 and SIL3 controllers according to IEC 61508. All Safety products consist of Safety components in the runtime and the development system. Moreover, users can develop their safe systems directly in the CODESYS Development System on the basis of CODESYS Safety for EtherCAT Safety Module.
