  • SoftPLC Communication & I/O Drivers

    These loadable modules and related instructions are included in each SoftPLC and Gateway product, and are updated via the package management system.

    • SoftPLC Ethernet/IP™ TLM
    • Describes the installation, usage, and functionality of the Ethernet/IP driver for SoftPLC, enabling it to be a both a master/scanner and slave/adapter on one Ethernet/IP network.

    • SoftPLC ModbusTCP/UDP Master Driver TLM
    • Describes the installation, usage, and functionality of the SoftPLC version 4 TLM for the master (or client) side of the Modbus TCP/UDP protocol.

    • SoftPLC Modbus Serial RTU Master TLM
    • Describes the installation, usage, and functionality of the driver for SoftPLC version 4 for the Modbus Master RTU protocol, used to communicate with I/O and other devices on RS-485, -232 or -422.

    • SoftPLC ModbusTCP/UDP Slave Driver TLM
    • Describes the installation, usage, and functionality of the SoftPLC version 4 for the slave (or server) side of the Modbus TCP protocol, used to communicate to HMI/SCADA or controller peer-to-peer over Ethernet.

    • SoftPLC Modbus Serial Slave TLM
    • Describes the installation, usage, and functionality of the driver for SoftPLC version 4 for the Modbus slave protocol, used to communicate between intelligent devices on RS-232, -485, or -422.

    • SoftPLC A-B Remote I/O Scanner (Master) Driver TLM
    • Describes the installation, usage, and functionality of the Allen-Bradley Remote I/O (RIO) Scanner driver for SoftPLC's internal interface.

    • SoftPLC A-B Remote I/O Adapter (Slave) Driver TLM
    • Describes the installation, usage, and functionality of the Allen-Bradley Remote I/O Slave TLM, which enables a SoftPLC to emulate remote racks on an Allen-Bradly Remote I/O network via its internal interface.

    SoftPLC TLM's/TLI's TOP

    These loadable modules and instructions are included in each SoftPLC and Gateway product, and are updated via the package management system.

    • COMGENIUS
    • Instructions which enable SoftPLC to perform general purpose ASCII communications to/from serial devices. This TLM includes implementation of a simple Modbus Master protocol.

    • Logger
    • Describes the installation, usage, and functionality of the add-on instruction for SoftPLC version 4 which provides the capability to log a group of data values to comma-separated values (CSV) text files, plus information on how to copy the file to an alternative location, such as a USB memory stick or network drive.

    • LogData
    • Instruction which enables SoftPLC to log data to a binary file. Includes utility to convert binary log file to ASCII for use with spreadsheets or database programs. Useful for high-speed, high volume data logging.
