DL405: DirectSOFT5 PLC Programming Software


Our powerful Windows-based DirectSOFT programming package is new and improved. With many new instructions, programming is now easier, quicker and more intuitive than ever.

Improved viewing options and customizable tool bars make it easier to program and monitor your PLC system.

With DirectSOFT5, documentation can be exported for use in other applications such as our C-more operator interface panels. User Interface Themes allow operators to create a unique look and feel for the DirectSOFT programming environment. The dockable window feature allows relocation of Cross Reference and Data views. The ability to auto-hide or even tear away views and place them outside the DirectSOFT5 work space optimizes full ladder viewing.

The product offering has been simplified to a full support PC-DSOFT5 package that programs all of our DirectLogic PLCs, and our new PC-DS100 package, which is a full-featured FREE programming package with a 100 word limitation. (DS100 is only available by download from our Web site).

DirectSoft5 - graphical "Pick-and-Place" Programming Language


Different program styles can be combined within each project.
Standard Relay Ladder-Logic instructions, with status display of states and values, full documentation, and value/state forcing in pop-up data windows. 
Great when debugging a fault.
Ladder-Logic can be easily split into stage steps
Status displayed in a flow chart.
Time or Event driven Drum sequencer program instructions, with visual status debug.
Autotune PID loops, operating in forward, reverse, and cascade mode, with trending and tuning data view windows.
66 new iBox instructions:
for easy fill-in-the-box setup of common and complex functions.
Example: 
When a machine goes down, send an email using instruction IB-77 (ECEMAIL) to Engineering, as well as the Production Manager, showing which machine is down and when it went down.
Improved viewing options and customizable tool bars make it easier to program and monitor your PLC system.
