DirectSOFT Programming software


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).
