Technicians like it
when you use our
programming and
documentation tools
A well-documented program can save
thousands of dollars in downtime when
something breaks, but not all packages
make it easy to document the program.
Use our grid-based documentation editor
to quickly and intuitively create rung
comments, 16-character element nicknames, 6 x 19-character element descriptions, and 16-character wiring labels.
What’s New in
DirectSOFT6?
• Over 40 new IBoxes available
• Configurable toolbars

with auto-backup settings for “file
freshen” frequency
• Import/export program (mnemonics and
rung comments) allows for archiving a
program in a single file (txt or CSV) that
does not need to be in the form of a
DirectSOFT6 file(s) format
• Export to C-more operator interface CSV
import format (nickname, type, PLC
address) to use the same tags in our PLC
program and operator interface
configuration
Program over Ethernet
You can program one or multiple
DirectLOGIC PLCs from one location over
an Ethernet network. Just insert an
Ethernet card in your PC and an ECOM
100 module in supported DL05, DL06,
DL205 and DL405 systems to monitor and
program at warp speed! An Ethernet
setup wizard leads you through the steps
to make the connection to your PLCs.

We have taken the guesswork out of everyday programming with IBox instructions. The IBox instructions are intelligent modularized instructions that perform simple to
complex ladder logic. If you need to set up an Analog
card fill in the blanks; If you need to perform a math
function on a value type in your formula; select a new
preset for your High Speed Counter (CTRIO); even send
an e-mail with your ECOM100 Ethernet communications
module! Take a minute to view the IBox Instruction Help
index to see detailed specifications of each of the 105
instructions, review which CPUs support the Ibox instructions or just get familiar with what they can do for you.
Other features include:
• Point and click or function key editing to suit anyone's
programming style
• Customizable Tool Bars for EVERY menu command
• Desktop Themes to allow you to customize your window
and tool bar look & feel
• All toolbars can be docked to any border or even floated
outside of the DirectSOFT window for maximum ladder
viewing
• Write your program with nicknames instead of data points
• I/O cross reference and element usage windows keep
track of addresses used
• Set up the D0-DCM for the DL05 & DL06 right from the
menu. PLC > Setup > D0-DCM allows you to configure each
of the two serial ports, no ladder code required

RLLPLUS Stage programming can help break a control
problem into smaller pieces and provide such benefits
as:
• Stages divide the ladder program into sections that
correspond to the states in a flowchart of your process
• Stages help make large programs more manageable by
giving them some structure
• Reduce scan time by scanning only the active stages

PC-DSOFT6
PC-DS100
Overview
$395.00
Free
DirectSOFT6 Programming Software has
been designed to make PLC programming and machine monitoring easier
than ever before. The 32-bit Windowsbased package provides simple menu
and icon choices that operate similarly to
those found in most standard Windows
packages. With DirectSOFT6 you can
have the power of Windows on the factory
floor.
To download our free version, please visit
our Web site at:
www.automationdirect.com/directsoft
Which package is right
for you?
The programming software packages
share the same general features, but
there are a couple of key differences:
PC-DSOFT6 programs all six CPU families
(DL05, DL06, DL105, DL205, DL305 and
DL405).
PC-DS100 is a free, full-feature software
package that allows a maximum of 100
words for programming, editing, and
downloading. Larger programs can be
created and saved but NOT reopened or
downloaded without purchasing the full
version.
Laptop/portable
computers and
off-site usage
Maintenance releases
Flexible configuration allows you to customize the look and feel of the software to suit your needs and desires.
Many of you may be using laptop
computers for field service work. This is
perfectly acceptable as long as it adheres
to the guidelines described previously.
Can I ship a copy to my
customer?
No, except for a single backup copy, you
cannot make, install, or distribute any
additional copies. You can transfer the
original copy (original CD, any applicable
upgrades, and any documentation) by
taking advantage of our Web registration
and ownership transfer site.
You can receive maintenance releases at
no charge by downloading them from our
Web site. These often include some minor
feature enhancements along with software corrections.
Software upgrades
PC-R60-U $249.00
Any release that contains major feature
enhancements will be subject to the
normal upgrade charge in effect at that
time. The DirectSOFT6 upgrade part
number is PC-R60-U.
Note: This upgrade will update any older packages that
are already installed on your system to a full programming package with all CPU support.
Of course, this means you cannot legally
keep a copy once you have transferred
the original.
Number of users
The packages listed above are really
“single-station” packages. That is, you
can legally install them on only one
computer. However, if there is only one
person who primarily uses the computer
(over 80% of the time), then you can
install the software on a laptop, home
office, or any other single backup
computer.

Programming versions
With DirectSOFT6 Programming Software,
selecting which software package you
need is a snap! You can select the fully
loaded package at its great low price, or
you may choose the FREE package. It has
all of the same programming functions as
the full package. However, it will only
download a program up to 100 words
long.
The fully-loaded version (PC-DSOFT6)
will program all of our DirectLOGIC
PLCs, some GE Series One Plus PLCs,
and TI305/405 SIMATIC PLCs. Refer to
the chart below to verify compatibility.
The FREE D i re c tSOFT6 package
(PC-DS100) was designed to provide a
more streamlined choice. You can see
from the table below that the FREE version
has the same support and same great
features, but will only allow you to open
or download a program up to 100 words
long.
Also, you cannot open an offline project
larger than 100 words. You can create a
project as large as you want and save it to
disk, but you cannot reopen or download
it to a PLC without purchasing the full
version (PC-DSOFT6).
PLC compatibility
If you’re using our DirectLOGIC products,
then compatibility is not an issue. All
DirectSOFT6 packages support all
DirectLOGIC CPUs. Our software also
supports many compatible products that
were offered by previous vendors of the
Koyo-designed PLCs. If you’re buying the
software to program a compatible CPU,
check the following table to make sure
your CPU is supported. (Sorry, but if your
CPU is not shown, then it is not
supported.)

NOTES:
Laptops: DirectSOFT6 is perfectly suitable for use with laptop computers as long as they meet the
requirements shown above. Most laptops can be ordered with a serial port as an option, which will
allow a direct connection to our DirectLOGIC PLCs. If your laptop has a USB port, consider using
our USB to serial adapter, USB-RS232. If your laptop has an Ethernet port and you are considering a
DL05, DL06, DL205 or DL405 PLC, consider using the Hx-ECOM100 Ethernet Communications
Module to connect your PC to the PLC (The D2-230 does not support the ECOM).
Monitors: Any size monitor will work, however, larger, higher resolution, monitors enhance the
features of DirectSOFT6.

The Launch Window
The Launch Window is a centralized location to view not only all
of your DirectSOFT6 applications and projects, but also any
additional applications such as NetEdit, DN Loader, CTRIO WB,
ERM WB, etc. This window is also used to create and manage
PLC programs and the communications between your PC and
the PLC.

Point and click editing
Once you have started a new project, there are a few different ways to start
building your program. The Ladder Palette, which is attached to the right
border by default, can be resized and repositioned anywhere on your
desktop. This contains most of the instructions you will need. Simply click
on the icon or use the Hot Key associated with that icon. Some instructions
have to be accessed through one of the Browser icons. The Browsers
contain all of the necessary information from various boxes, coils, and
contacts. You can now customize the Ladder Palette tool bar to fit your
programming style and needs.
Description, Wiring Info, Nickname, Element
Enter documentation information for each instruction/element.
Edit and review all documentation
Ladder Palette
Documentation
Documentation is the text associated with the components and
structure of your program. It helps to clarify the representation of
elements by assigning four different fields: Description, Wiring
Info, Nickname, and Element.
Onscreen views
DirectSOFT6 defaults to a Tab view to give you the most optimized viewing area.
You still have the option to view multiple windows in the original “MDI” format by
simply hitting the Restore button in the upper right of the active tabbed window, or
go to Windows menu and select one of the tile or cascade options. You can have
multiple windows open to view such things as all of the addresses used in the
program, a mnemonic view of the program instructions, and all of the instructions
used.
You can have multiple
views of your project
visible at the same
time. This screen shows
the Ladder View, Usage
View, Mnemonic View
and XRef View.

IBox instructions are parameterized fill-in-the-blank instructions designed to
make your programming experience quicker and easier than ever before.
Within these IBoxes you will find some complicated and some simple,
everyday ladder code tasks made easy and fast. There are 6 categories,
including Memory, Discrete Helper, Analog Helpers, Math, Communications
& Counter I/O, with 105 instructions to choose from. Here are a few examples of IBox instructions in DirectSOFT6 …
