Welcome to Do-more Designer 2.0. A quick tour of where it comes from and some of the features users like you have requested!
Welcome to Do-more Designer – your development environment for any PLC platform that uses the Do-more Engine. Do-more designer is the culmination of over 20 years of PLC tool development by Host Engineering in Jonesborough Tennessee. And most of that evolution came from requests and feedback by users like you. Which explains why Do-more Designer has so many easy to use yet powerful development tools like this dashboard where you just point to what you want to do and click on it; Configurable Dataviews for viewing real-time status of your data, trend views for monitoring how your data is changing over time, a PID process simulator to help you refine and tweak your PID Loops, system logs and monitoring tools to help you quickly isolate issues, quick access to cross referencing, a layered security system so you can determine who has access to what parts of the PLC, and even a built in simulator which allows you to test your code on the actual Do-more engine with no hardware. And my favorite: Anywhere you see this little red play button –click on it and you’ll get a video showing you what you need to know about that topic. And look, there’s even a video browser and video download tool so you can take the videos with you. How convenient that? Check out the videos on the start page to see how easy it is to write and deploy your first program, learn about the debugging tools available to you, understand how to get the most out of the Do-more engine, and take a quick look at the things that users tend to trip over. Click on this guy to go straight to the built in video search and download utilities. We’re constantly adding new videos to that library, so check back often and be sure to send us topics you would like to see videos cover.
