PC Based (Win PLC) Starter Project

This project can be used if you do not have any PLC Hardware (P2CDS-622 system) available and you want to learn/write some CODESYS code and run it. This is referred to as “Control WinP PLC” or a Windows PC based PLC that runs almost all the features of CODESYS within your PC.

The main item missing is the IO Modules the P2CDS-622 system would offer, but you can emulate these with some dedicated Input and Output variables you create.


CODESYS has already prepared an excellent WinPLC “First Project” that is very comprehensive.
