Square D Symax PLC


Thread Starter

Tom Cook

We have a Symax/Symate PLC 400 system and cannot locate the software for it and would like to do some adjustments to the ladder logic.

Does anyone remember anything about this system? Is there someplace we can purchase a copy of the SFW375 software (and 'KEY' if possible)? Is there a newer programming package that will work with it?

I would really appreciate any help or leads.

Check with your local Square D Company distributor and they will be able to assist you. The 8010 SFW375 package will not operate correctly with Microsoft Windows NT, 2000 or XP. The latest package is 8010SFW572 (WINMATE Programming and Support Software)

Have you contacted Schneider PLC support (1-888-266-8705) to see if there is a service tech in your area?

There is "no key" SQD PLC s/w available. Your issue may be finding a PC to run it on. Last time I used it I had to run a "slow DOS" program.

You can contact FasTrak Softworks, Inc., who continues to support and sell software for the Symax. PLC WorkShop for Square D (DOS) is the name of it, and it is very similar to the old Symate + or the SFW software. It supports all the files from those applications, and it is even capable of running under Windows 2000 or XP.
