Hi,

Has anyone looked at implementing Codesys on the Siemens IOT2040 device?

I would think it would make an ideal target - open, capable, UL approved, 24V powered...

Quote:
SIMATIC IOT2040 from the SIMATIC IOT2000 product series at a glance
Energy-saving Intel Quark processor and numerous interfaces: Intel Quark x1020 (+Secure Boot), 1 GB RAM, 2 Ethernet ports, 2 x RS232/485 interfaces, battery-backed RTC
Yocto Linux Support
Can be easily expanded with Arduino shields und miniPCIe cards
Various options for programming in high-level languages
Compact design and DIN rail mounting
Proven SIMATIC quality offers great ruggedness, reliability and longevity

http://w3.siemens.com/mcms/pc-based-automation/en/industrial-iot/pages/default.aspx

You could easily make custom Arduino shields to add functionality as needed.

Regards,

Peter

Hi,

a SoftPLC for the IoT2000 series is already in the development. The first release is scheduled for June 2017 (CODESYS V3.5 Servicepack 11). A preview was visible on the Embedded World Show in March and the CODESYS Users Conferences. It was maybe for the very first time that a Siemens device was handling EtherCAT I/Os 8)

Stay tuned - the SoftPLC will be offered in the CODESYS Store quite soon... :D

Excellent News!

I look forward to testing it when available.

Will it support Web Visualization?

I does not support CODESYS WebVisu in my preliminary Version, but it is very likely included in the release. I am not sure whether the colleagues will manage to integrate all requested features within the first "shot".
Anyway: We are looking forward to having that SoftPLC, too :-)

Any update on the availability. I finally managed to get my hands on one...

Hi Josep,
if you would apply a rt_preempt patched Linux kernel, this would be possible without modification of the plc runtime to have realtime capabilities,
@PJE Webvisu will be in on 3.5SP11Patch1 release.

Thanks Edwin.

I supose that thap patch makes the kernel hard real time(+-7us max jitter), not like raspi patch which has +- 100 us.

I managed to install 3.5.11 on my IOT2040 and have a simple program running.... Thanks.

I have a few questions:

1. Any chance of a IOT2000 section in the forum like the BeagleBone and Raspberry PI? It would be nice to keep all the information together.
2. Any information on access to Siemens I/O shield, as mentioned above by banzai35.
3. Hardware implementations for Storage, Serial, Ethernet (fieldbusses). Can I have access to a folder on the MicroSD card or a USB memory device?
4. How are persistent variables handled?
5. When will Patch 1 be available for Webvisu?
6. Any information on installing the real-time (rt_preempt) kernel as mentioned above? I use Codesys to hide all the complex stuff underneath ;0)

It would be nice to put together a set of simple example programs to highlight the use of the units integrated functions.

Regards,

PJE

hm.. let me check

2. Any information on access to Siemens I/O shield, as mentioned above by banzai35.
yes good chance to get it will take some time

3. Hardware implementations for Storage, Serial, Ethernet (fieldbusses). Can I have access to a folder on the MicroSD card or a USB memory device?
yes should already work

4. How are persistent variables handled?
not implemented at the moment - where is it located physical address etc ?

5. When will Patch 1 be available for Webvisu?
next week I guess

6. Any information on installing the real-time (rt_preempt) kernel as mentioned above? I use Codesys to hide all the complex stuff underneath ;0)
almost the same process like with other Linux Systems.. - guess for IOT there is a Yocto build environment available? Isn't it?

Thanks. I'll see what I can do on examples and the real time kernel, and post what I can.
