    Is there a small software which can be used to deploy applications to a device? E.g.If I send updated applications to customers can they upload it to their local PLC with a tool less complex than the whole codesys development platform? Or is this thinking outdated and this is now managed in the automation server?

    really CODESYS V2.3?
    On CODESYS V3 you could deploy the plc's with the CODESYS Automation Server.

    It's Codesys 3.5
    If I have 10 different clients running their own instance of a system can they each manage it themselves over Automation Server if I make new softwares available?. There is no small codesys_sw_loader.exe which I can send to the client along with the software so they can upgrade themselves locally? E.g in a situation where the system is running without Internet connectivity.

    I'm currently developing a proof of concept system using RaspberryPi with Pixtend. And now I realize I don't understand how the end users of the system is supposed to load the sw updates.
    For embedded systems, which I'm used to, there is commonly a small tool allowing end users to update the software without having to install a complete developer environment. Or at times some helpers to allow upgrade from within the application itself (like a http upload, or tftp transfer).
