AC 500 - Codesys 3

Hi all, I'm starting a project in automation builder 2.0 and I know that the builder works with codesys 2.3 like the older versions, using the builder only to configurate the AC500 device and build the apllication in the cosedys 2.3 (I been working in this way), but I want understand how far we can do programing AC500 thru codesys 3 and using every capabilities of that , I can't find any manual on the web for that.

Can anyone help me in this one?

to use Codesys 3 you need to use the last products of AC 500 series PLC's like PM5630 - PM5650 - PM5670 - PM5675

Certainly if it is necessary for you to use codesys 3.X you will have to use the cpu that I have listed above, evaluate if you can also use some traditional cpu, like those series PM 573-83-90 etc.

Hope this help you

So, as far I understood, I can only use the codesys 3 in those 4 PLC, with the 573-ETH I have to use the same 2.3 right?
Thank you.
