Selecting which software package you need is a snap with DirectSOFT5 Programming Software. Users can select the fully loaded package at its great low process, or users may choose the free package. The free package has all of the same programming functions as the full package. It will download a program to 100 words long.
The DirectLOGIC PLCs will be programmed by the full loaded version of PC-DSOFT5, some GE series one plus PLCs, and TI305/405 SIMATIC PLCs. The free DirectSOFT5 package, PC-DS100, was designed to provide a more streamline choice. The free version has the same support and same great features, but it will allow you to open or download a program to 100 words long.
Using free version you also can not open an offline projects larger than 100 words. You can create a new project and save it to the disk, but you can not reopen or download to a PLC without purchase the full version.
The PLC compatibility is not an issue if you are using the DirectLogic. The software of DirectSOFT5 also supports many compatible products that were offered by other vendors of the Koyo-designed PLCs.
