CODESYS is the most widely used manufacturer independent IEC 61131-3 Development System on the market. By including an integrated visualization with different clients, integrated connection to all standard fieldbus systems, motion functionality, safety solutions and communication interfaces, it covers the complete software side of automation.
CodeMeter® is a world leading technology that streamlines software monetization strategies. With the same unique platform customers can enjoy the most sophisticated software protection techniques and a highly flexible licensing management system. It finds optimal application in both the ISV and the industry automation worlds.
The partnership between CODESYS and Wibu-Systems was born out of the market need for IP protection against reverse engineering and copy protection against counterfeiting attempts. The integration of CodeMeter with CODESYS has involved different technological levels:
the protection of the source code in the development tool
the protection of the boot application
the protection of the usage through application functions and libraries
the creation of protected code for PLC target systems
There’s no better way to grasp all the details than to listen to the leading voices behind this strategic partnership and see the solution running before your eyes.
During this webcast you will learn
how you can easily implement software protection when developing with CODESYS
how you can add plugins for license management to your CODESYS-based application
about recent development undertaken by the two companies over the last few months
