OK. I've decided I want to use a PC for control. Why should I choose SoftPLC?
SoftPLC is the only PC-based control product that also has (and usually exceeds) the:

of proprietary "hard" PLC's, yet is itself, an open architecture system.
Normally configured as an embedded system, SoftPLC runs on hardware much like a PLC - no hard drive, monitor, keyboard, etc. What's more, SoftPLC doesn't have a WinXX operating system installed, so there are no concerns about "the blue-screen of death", or other applications causing the controller to become non-deterministic or fail.
SoftPLC is designed to run 365 days a year, 24 hours/day - and does!
