3S-Smart Software Solutions has since pretty long had a Raspberry Pi (RPI) target image available for their CODESYS runtime. The intention was to create something that you could buy very cheap, primarily for students and such to learn how to program 61131-3.

As I’m primarily working with TwinCAT3, which is based on CODESYS, I’ve been thinking about building a really cheap 61131-3 compatible PLC based on the RPI and the CODESYS target. I didn’t just want it to be one board laying around in my home, but I also wanted it to have the “industrial” feeling, and luckily I found a perfect development board + case for me to initialize the project. Now that it’s finished, I have a PLC running an EtherCAT master in the CODESYS runtime for almost no money at all.

Webpage is up! Here I’m going to have various information about different PLC programming tutorials. This will mostly be in the TwinCAT 3 and CODESYS environment. I’ve found out that there aren’t too many blogs/resources on TwinCAT 3 development. As I’m working with mostly TwinCAT-development every day at my job I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the knowledge I’ve aquired during as time has passed. Stay tuned!
