Product Overview

The CODESYS Ethernet driver connects to operations utilizing CODESYS, a PLC runtime and development environment used by many PLC brands in the Automation Industry.

The CODESYS Ethernet driver is especially useful to the Pharmaceutical, Food and Beverage, and Packaging industries, where data must be collected from controllers across the factory for a number of applications—including traceability, monitoring and control, and plant-wide automation.

With the CODESYS Ethernet driver, Kepware seamlessly connects to devices running CODESYS V2.3 and V3 to provide reliable and secure access to real-time industrial data.

  • Provides real-time data access to CODESYS V2.3 and V3-compatible devices (read/write connectivity)
  • Supports CODESYS Gateways
  • Supports automatic tag generation directly from the device and from the project file
  • Supports a tag browser for browsing, filtering, and selecting specific tags to import
  • Supports Symbolic Addressing
  • Supports arrays and strings
  • Supports bit-within-byte
  • Supports device diagnostics, enabling the diagnosis of any issues with connectivity based on seamless integration with the CODESYS API
  • Supports Media Level Redundancy
  • CODESYS V2.3 Ethernet over ARTI
  • CODESYS V2.3 via Gateway
  • CODESYS V3 over ARTI
  • CODESYS V3 over Gateway
  • English
  • German



  • Added a new property that allows the symbols to be loaded to a local directory to avoid the overhead of symbol copy over the network on every connect attempt.
  • Added support for CODESYS V3.5.18.0.



  • Enhanced the V2.3 model to allow strings with extended ascii characters.



  • Implemented CODESYS PLC handler version 3.5.13.



  • Added a configurable Request Timeout to allow connection to V2.3 devices with slow response times.
