In this moment none of our boards can't be driven by CODESYS because of this problems with drivers what I wrote before. I tried CODESYS forum, but there is only basic support, eg.
Hi VikTan What is your status of the I/O boards?
I am very mach interesting on them CODESYS drivers or not
You can contact directly with me :

Thanks a lot

Hey VikTan,

I know that I'm digging up an old subject, but have you tried the straton solution ?
I recently started using it first for a school project and now for some "domotics", the software just released its 9.4 version and is packed with drivers for industries.

There is an IEC61131-3 Editor running on Windows, then you can download the runtime you want and place it on your hardware. The demo version has a limitation in time but you can restart it as often as you want.

Just in case here the link of the website/downloads page : https://www.straton-plc.com/en/software/

Hope it can help you :)

Hi guys,
1 - STRATON looks a very promising package. I wrote to them to have some price quotas.
2 - CODESYS remains (at the moment) top of the list for Raspberry Pi
3 - BEREMIZ stil is a choice. It is working on Raspberry . FREE and OPEN SOURCE
4 - 4DIAG (https://www.eclipse.org/4diac/en_help.p ... cally.html) is an advanced FREE and OPEN SOURCE project based on IEC 61499. More advanced language than IEC 61131-3. It includes all IEC 61131-3 Function Blocks plus a lot more.
I tried the blink program on raspberry and working fine.
5 - Last but not least is OPENPLC project by thiagoralves. Grate job. FREE and OPEN SOURCE

Best of all recently thiagoralves here:

https://openplc.discussion.community/po ... 1309588065

Announced that his new version v1.0 will incorporate BEREMIZ editor . That is in reality PLCOPEN editor Same editor with CODESYS with minor differences but is industry standard. This will include the very famous OSCAT library as well.
The thing with OPENPLC solution is that his approach is working. Is FREE and OPEN SOURCE !.

I do not know what is the status of the I/O hardware so far here but for some time in OPENPLC forum we are trying to build a modular I/O PLC system.
Our latest approach is a system we call it M10 (after many many man hours from many contributes building various designs) .
That is modular I/O framework with dimension 100X100 mm based on Raspberry Pi bus. It may include a Raspberry or any other CPU in the future.
Work is in progress here and you are welcome to contribute if you like the idea. Work is stalled at the moment but the idea is alive and have very good prospects. We thing is a clever approach considering all data.
You can see project M10 here:

https://openplc.discussion.community/po ... ?&trail=60

I am very happy. I started this thread in 2011 and see so many doing so many.

Stay safe and healthy
Vasilis

Explaining our M10 modular controller concept. I thing you will find it at least interesting. This is difference of what is published so far. In many ways.
We are a team of enthusiast in electronics (many having electronics and automation as a profession) preparing a hardware modular concept we call it M10. M is is modular and 10 because of external dimensions 10x10cm. Then a maximum cube can be build called PACK, 10x10x10 cm
we already designed
1 - CPU board (RASPI 4)
2 - Digital relay output for 220V 16A loads, (8 channels)
3 - Digital Input + Digital output (16 channels)
4 - 3D box enclosures . First models are constructed but work still in progress
opto isolation is done and modules are working with 24 volts.
Everything is opensource in Eagle and KiCAD format.
Teamwork development is taking place on a M10 slack workspace
more modules are on the drawing board and will be announced soon.
See some work on the shared Dropbox
Schematics included

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ooqh59vevvxy ... 9RA3a?dl=0

A draft (road map) is already unofficial for discussion inside the team. Soon will go public for everyone to comment, to contribute and to free distribute to the community. The idea has hears of thinking and years in Industrial Automation control. will be presented first time and as far as know there is not something like it as a whole. The idea is NOT STATIC but DYNAMIC by nature.

Have fun spread the idea and tel us your reaction on that
