The C-more Micro Programming Software is a free download from Automation Direct. This is similar to the more powerful C-more Touch Panel programming software. This free HMI (Human Machine Interface) software has features designed to reduce your configuration time. Simply drag and drop the objects from the object bar onto the screen construction area. Configure your PLC tags and click on the objects you want to use. A built-in simulator will allow you to review your work on the computer before downloading the project.
