BCS Tools - supporting the entire process

BCS Tools is the one-in-all tool supporting the entire process from engineering through commissioning to maintenance.


Features of BCS Tools

BCS Tools is a CODESYS-based IEC 61131-3 development system for programming intelligent automation devices. BCS Tools offers a variety of user-friendly engineering functions to make your development process faster and more efficient. BCS Tools is an all-in-one tool supporting the entire process from engineering though commissioning and maintenance.

The BCS Tools development system

BCS Tools conforms to the IEC 61131-3 standard and provide practice-oriented and standardized application programming for users from all industrial sectors. BCS Tools additionally integrates comprehensive possibilities for high-level language programming. Many functions support users of different programming levels in all development phases.

  • Project tree for structuring project configuration e.g. to divide the entire application into objects and tasks.
  • Configurator for integrating and describing various devices and fieldbus systems.
  • Editors for typical application development in all graphical and text-based implementation languages defined by the IEC 61131-3.
  • Functions for continued project engineering, such as linking of existing C code, integrated 3D visualization or interfaces to other software systems.
  • Compilers generating lean and powerful machine code. Debugger, simulator, and SoftPLC (as trial target system) for direct user testing of the created applications.
