Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) have been around since the late 60´s. They are basically digital computers adapted to industrial automation needs and are largely used in the most diverse manufacturing plants.
Our partner Codesys has a software PLC solution that can be deployed on our ARM-based System on Module families (Colibri and Apalis) in order to transform the module into a PLC solution. It is the perfect fit for use cases where the device end-user must have the capacity to program the device behavior. See the list of Devices using Codesys (you see some famous PLC brands like Beckhoff, Wago, and Eaton).
Codesys can run on Linux or Windows Embedded Compact, please see below for more information.
Codesys can run in a variety of operating systems and hardware platforms including Linux and ARM-based devices.
