Hi, I use CODESYS 3.5 SP16. I'm trying to use EATON XC303 controller, and in order to define I/O variables I need device description. The problem is, there's no description on EATON official site.
I was able to download demos for XC303 from that site; in those demos there's link to device description, which is as follows
But CODESYS IDE says that there's no such file.
Where can I find that device description file?
With CODESYS, there is no device description for Eaton PLC, or Schneider one, or no other.
To program an Eaton PLC you have to use Xsoft-CODESSYS-3, a software from Eaton. You can get an evaluation version here : http://applications.eaton.eu/sdlc/?lx=11
But to download your program and use it with a real PLC you must get a licence from Eaton.
CODESYS is free of charge, but many manufacturer version are paid (Eaton, Schneider, Wago, ...)
Yes you should be using a license from Eaton but doing so does not unlock any functional differences. I've been back and forth with Eaton tech support on this. I have a license and do advise anyone using xsoft-Codesys professionally to get one, if for no other reason than their tech support is really helpful.
