Rugid provides a free, easy, and convenient software package for programming your Rugid PLCs! The best part is that no formal programming experience or knowledge is required.  All Rugid PLCs use pre-compiled modules.  As the programmer, all you do is fill in the blanks to configure the module to your specific system.

Units can execute involved control strategies and signal filtering algorithms using the pre-compiled onboard modules.  BASIC* and ladder logic are also included in the Windows 95/98/2000/XP/NT/Vista/7 support software.  The operating system resides in FLASH memory and can be reloaded serially at any time for easy upgrade.
