CODESYS - an optimal basis

The experts at Berghof know from many years of experience that compatibility and openness in particular are important criteria for Berghof customers. That is why Berghof Automation & Control Solutions has consistently relied on the open control platform Codesys 3.5 for many years. The Berghof team is always enthusiastic about the unique flexibility and functionality of the CODESYS software platform, one of the most widely used programming tools in the world. The platform is based on the IEC 61131-3 programming tool "CODESYS Development System". This programming language improves the life cycle of the software and facilitates requirements analysis, design, construction, testing, validation, installation, operation and maintenance.
CODESYS allows the programming languages IL, LD, FBD, ST, AS and CFC. This makes it easy to implement applications with complex, distributed architectures. As an internationally proven engineering tool, CODESYS has now established itself as a worldwide standard. The software tool enables programmable visualization as well as programmable safety and motion control. All this is also available in ready-made modules from software libraries. Berghof controllers use Linux as a platform, so that a wide variety of software modules can be easily combined.
