WindLDR has now been upgraded to version 5.20, which provides compatibility for the new Windows Vista operating system and programme conversion from all earlier Idec PLCs
Idec Electronics announces the latest version of WindLDR 5.20 PLC programming software, which incorporates a number of new features.
WindLDR has now been upgraded to version 5.20.
This provides compatibility for the new Windows Vista operating system.
Other improvements include programme conversion from all earlier Idec PLCs, the introduction of new instructions including I/O force for the Pentra PLC, improvements to the Ladder Editor and selectable comment and tag name storage in the PLC.
An exciting feature that was introduced on the previous version of WindLDR is programme simulation on a PC.
Ladder programmes can be tested without downloading to the PLC.
Contact closing and opening can be affected simply by double clicking on the contact meaning you can selectively test all parts of the programme as required.
This has been further improved by simulating the communication interchanges of the PLC serial ports, by using a PC serial port.
A Port Monitor dialogue box monitors the exchanged data.
All customers who have WindLDR version 4.00 and upwards can upgrade to version 5.20 free of charge by accessing the Idec website.
