Seminar ID 76109
Identifier PRG3XLCOD3
Course type Classroom Based Training
Duration 3 Days
Target audience Developers
Price 2070 €


The course explains the programming of the ESX-3XL controller with CODESYS V3 including the STW-specific software, plugins, libraries and tools.

The course is intended for developers, who will program own applications for the ESX-3XL.

The theoretical course content will be deepened with programming examples from practice.


The participant

  • Knows hard- and software requirements for programming the ESX-3XL
  • Knows the STW technical documentation and is able to use it for target-oriented research
  • Is able to program own applications with CODESYS and the STW software package
  • Is able to upload software on the ESX-3XL, change parameters and monitor the controller


Basic programming knowledge, ideally with CODESYS V3, at least knowledge of programming electronic controllers.
