Phoenixville, Pennsylvania — October 15, 2015 — CimQuest INGEAR, a leading publisher of runtime-free software development solutions for industrial applications, has introduced a new version of its NET.LOGIX software. All versions of the company’s NET.LOGIX software contain a library of drivers for Allen Bradley ControlLogix, CompactLogix, SoftLogix and Micro800 series programmable automation controllers (PAC) that Visual Studio.NET programmers can use to create HMI (Human Machine Interface) applications. NET.LOGIX software provides direct access to the controller memory, data bases, I/O and communications, letting programmers obtain the information they need from the controller, process it in a PC, and send commands back to the device for control. The software does not require third-party components, drivers, APIs or tools such as OPC Servers. This approach, in contrast to proprietary PLC supplier solutions, is a dramatic improvement for machine builders in that NET.LOGIX completely eliminates costly runtime fees applied to each unit sold.
NET.LOGIX v6.0 has enhanced unsolicited message support which allows Allen-Bradley controllers to request (read) data from a user application. Additionally, the user application can optionally reject an unsolicited message causing the MSG.ER bit in the controller to be set, and selecting variety of error codes for the MSG.ERR value such as “TAG DOES NOT EXIST”.
NET.LOGIX v6.0 also adds ability to upload symbolic tag list from Micro 800 series CPU, as well as a number of under-the-updates such as: driver update for Micro 800 FRN 6.0 and later, driver update for 1756-L85E and cpu and later, updated licensing and other miscellaneous improvements and fixes.
NET.LOGIX v6.0 comes in four versions: Developer Edition, Compact Framework, Developer Team Edition and Single Machine Edition. Developer Edition is for designing, creating, and deploying Windows programs, system services and console applications. Compact Framework is for creating programs for devices such as Allen-Bradley PanelView, handheld scanners, HMI Panels, PDAs and other devices. Developer Team Edition is for developing automation projects in a Visual Studio.NET team environment. Single Machine Edition is for designing, testing, debugging and running Windows programs, system services and console applications on a single machine.
NET.LOGIX 6.0 supports Visual Studio 2005-1015. Applications developed with NET.LOGIX 6.0 can run on 64 and 32-bit Windows XP to Windows 10, Windows Server 2000 or later, Windows Compact Framework, and Windows Mobile.
Existing NET.LOGIX 5.0 users under current support are eligible to receive version 6.0 as a free upgrade.
NET.LOGIX 6.0 is available for immediate download and free trial.
