2019 CODESYS Training

Join Power/mation for a fast-paced, in-depth training on the world’s most widely accepted IEC61131-3 standard industrial programming environment.

This training utilizes intensive hands-on learning techniques to combine the traditional 3-day introductory and 2-day advanced courses into one 4-day training experience. After this class you will be ready to bring the power of CODESYS to bear on your next industrial controls programming job. You will be well qualified to program the millions of industrial controllers around the world powered by CODESYS.

Subject Matter:
  • CODESYS Integrated Development Environment (IDE)
  • IEC61131-3 Industrial Programming Languages
  • Object-oriented programming and its application to industrial controls
  • (see syllabus on page 2 for details)
  • General knowledge of Industrial Controls programming
  • Openness to new methodologies and paradigms
  • Well rested and ready to drink from the fire hose
Requirements and Pre-class Preparations:
  • Participants will provide their own Windows Laptop computer with CODESYS pre-installed and tested (software provided to you approximately one week prior to the training). Please contact us if you need assistance in obtaining a laptop.

About the Instructor

This class will be conducted by Mr. Gary L. Pratt, P.E. Mr. Pratt's career in 1982 with Chevron Corporate Engineering, and recently retired as president of the CODESYS Corporation. He is an enthusiast  and evangelist for both IEC61131-3 and CODESYS and has published many articles on the latest programming techniques enabled by IEC61131-3 and CODESYS. He also holds several patents in the area of industrial controls. Mr. Pratt has been teaching this course and refining the course material for many years with the goal of providing the most comprehensive and effective training on the subjec available. He is pleased to be able to share his knowledge and experience with the next generations of controls engineers.

The Benefits of CODESYS

  • In the 1990s, the industry developed standardized programming languages and now CODESYS represents the evolution of a single development environment to better implement those languages.
  • CODESYS brings a standard IDE (Integrated Development Environment) to a growing number of Power/mation’s key industry partners such as ABB, Lenze, Nidec Control Techniques, Turck and Festo. These manufacturers can modify the technology with their own libraries and other customization, but the core is CODESYS.
  • CODESYS brings a standard IDE (Integrated Development Environment) to implement the industry’s standard IEC-61131-3 programming languages in one package (Ladder, Function Block Diagram,Structured Text, Instruction List, and Sequential Function Chart).
  • CODESYS caters to users’ preference to code with the languages in which they are familiar.
  • Power/mation carries the automation products necessary to your application that support CODESYS.
  • CODESYS adoption is growing quickly. Here is a current list of other companies that use the platform:
