Post subject:  licenses question

In our company we are Planning to start using the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ device as a small PLC.

I would like to ask you some questions:

1. Which runtime license do we need to buy for a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+?
a. CODESYS Control for Raspberry Pi SL
b. CODESYS Control for Raspberry Pi MC SL

2. We plan to use the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ device as an EtherCAT master, do we need any other license for that?

3. We plan to use the “web visu” in those projects too; do we need any other license for that?
a. The Pi will be connected using HDMI to a big TV, the same Pi will start the Chromium browser in kiosk mode showing the visualization into the TV.

4. Given our scenario: programming a Raspberry from our PC, are the Codesys programming development tools (programming software) free?
a. Do we need to buy any license for being able to program that Raspberry from our computer?

Thank you very much for your time and answers.

This is up to you!
Both is possible to use with PI3 - Multicore Version you have additional the possibilty to distribute the tasks to deticated cores,
for example Visu on Core1, Ethercat on Core 0 ...

No in general nothing extra is needed, there are some products like SVN Integration / Static Analysis etc.. which give additional posibilities...

Hi,
For multicore you need the license there is no demo mode available... (due technical reasons)
