Does anyone know which software is used to program Shihlin PLCs?

There is a software available to talk to Shihlin PLCs. We have an A1-30MR Shihlan PLC at our facility. When we inquired about documentation/programming software, we were advised to purchase a copy of "MEDOC" software. The cost is about $100. You will also need an interface cable it is called "A-Link" and costs approx $190. These items can be purchased through Taiwan Control co. There web site address is http://www.taiwan-control.com.tw

I also have one A1-30MR PLC. However I can't find any programming cable for this PLC. I had read through your message and knew that is using A-Link. So that anyone let me know where to buy it? By the way, I had asked through the taiwan-control.com.tw but they said this item already discontinued produce. So I planned to buy the retail goods. I hope that someone can help me this issue. Thanks!

i have download the MEDOC software from http://www.taiwan-control.com.tw (http://www.taiwan-control.com.tw/) , is there any way i can get the pinout configuration for the "A-Link" cable? Is there any manual for that?

It's a Mitsubishi. I think the cable is and RS232/485 converter but not sure. Can probably buy from Mitsubishi.

:nerves: Shihlin Electric does the actual manufacturing of the (F Series) Mitsubishi PLCs.http://www.lighthouseplcs.com/images/AX2n_small.jpg They are - as a matter of fact - identical to the Mitsubishi in fit, form and function. Just change the Mitsubishi "F" in the part number to "A", and that is the Shihlin part number.
>>--> The point is, just use MEDOC for FX/GX-Developer as your software. F, F1, and F2 (A, A1, A2 in Shihlin) do require either a F2-20GF1 with Mitsubishi PCX-KIT1(EIA422 to EIA232C converter) - or a Mitsbishi F-Link (Shihlin A-Link). The F2-20GF1, F-Link, and A-Link are now obsolete, but can sometimes be found on eBay. PCX-KIT1 is still available. Hope this helps!:wizard:
