There were a few versions of the sy/mate software, maybe if you contact Schneider Electric - who now own Square D, they can get you a copy (unlikely). I run mine on an XP machine with real serial port - it’s a DOS program.

You use an RS232-RS422 converter to program the PLC, which interfaces with a D9 connector. Picture of my original Sy/Max unit below.

There was a windows version of the software, which you can still buy, and a new interface - I found this on Schneider’s website:

The WinMate programming software, ordering part number 8010SFW572 can still be ordered through the Service Sales group. Simply send an email request to "" and ask for pricing and availability on the WinMate 8010SFW572 programming software.

For the programming cable, NR&D sells a SC902 Smart cable which is a SyMax compatible RS-422 cable with a miniature RS-232/RS-422 converter built into the 9-pin RS-232 end. It is intended to be used to connect the 9-pin RS-232 COM port of a personal computer directly to the SyMax compatible RS-422 port of the controller. To purchase the SC902 cable contact to NR&D (Niobrara Research & Development) at #800-235-6723.

I actually bought a copy of symate software to run on a windows 10 machine from the use dosbox to run the old dos program. I believe it was like $9800 for five site licenses..... the cables are still available for purchase from NR&D.
