Creating an Empty Control Program

Creating an Empty Control Program

Prepare an empty CODESYS program with the controller, I/O, and communications configured.

About this course

In this course, learn how to create an empty control program with CODESYS including:

  • Defining and Connecting to the Hardware

Learn how to create a new project shell, configure the hardware and communicate to the groov EPIC Controller.

  • Configuring the groov I/O Modules

Learn how to download an Empty Project to the controller, add the groov I/O modules to the Project, map the groov I/O, update the module and controller, define the Ethernet IP, and run the Empty Program.

Course Duration: ~ 45-60 minutes
