Software libraries 

Leverage Danfoss engineering expertise by utilizing our PLUS+1® function block libraries in your  programming projects.

Danfoss has invested thousands of engineering hours designing, developing and validating software libraries to save you time project after project! The core PLUS+1® function block libraries are included with a PLUS+1® GUIDE Professional license. Advanced functionality can be added through Professional Add-on modules.

The Propel Application Library supports all phases of software development from beginning to end. These are specification, design, coding, implementation and testing and documentation. PAL offers a lot of different PLUS+1® function blocks split in two available packages. One is the free PAL Basic package and the other one is the license-based PAL Advanced package. For both packages we provide a free examples here, which helps to understand the usage of PAL function blocks. An overview and more detailed information of the available PAL function blocks are written at the PAL technical information document which is part of the packages or which you can find on Danfoss.com search.

Basic

Posted: March, 2019

GUIDE version: 8.1 or greater

The PAL Basic package deliver function blocks that are the foundation for the Propel Application Library. PAL Basic allow propel software developers easily to create a basic hydrostatic propel solution software in much shorter time as normal. At the same time having a very high quality. User manuals and programming guides are included with each block. This allows easy integration into any new or existing system. More sophisticated functionality can easily be added with the PAL Advanced library. This is an add-on module for PLUS+1® GUIDE Professional.

Advanced

Posted: March, 2019

GUIDE version: 8.1 or greater

The PAL Advanced package consist of several function blocks which allows to improve the driving comfort. In addition, it reduces fuel or offers special features for the propel software solution. These functions supporting machine protection like antistall or overspeed protection function. All function blocks are developed on the same high-quality level as PAL Basic. This is done by a lot of pre-tests and checks and will supported by detailed self-explaining documentations. For instance, user manuals and programmer guides. PAL Advanced is only running with a valid license key which can be ordered for a yearly subscription. Material no. first time order is 11182154 and for the renewal it is 11182155. (Please, mention the email address of the receiver of the license key in your order!).
