Below you will find a short step-by-step guide on how to perform an application-based licence upgrade


  1. The CODESYS License Manager (look: helps you to check the performance class of the currently installed licences. You will need this information later to configure the "Base License" setting.
  2. In the CODESYS Store, select the performance class to which you want to upgrade. For the Control SL licences there are separate products, for OPC UA, Visualization and SoftMotion you can navigate directly to the respective product with the desired performance class.
  3. In the selected performance class, you must enter the licence already installed as determined in step 1 as the "Base License". This reduces the amount to be paid, as only the difference between the performance classes is charged as costs.
  4. After ordering, you will receive an e-mail confirmation containing a new licence ticket. You must install this licence ticket on the controller as usual using the CODESYS License Manager. The upgrade licence completely updates the already installed licence without any further steps.
  5. The controller is then ready for use with the new performance class.
