PROFINET-Supervisor Library

The PROFINET-Supervisor Library adresses integrators of PROFINET in own

application developer can use simple function calls e.g. for connect/disconnect or
reading/writing records.

The library is provided as a DLL for Microsoft Windows operating systems. A
wrapper for .Net runtime is also available on request.

With this tool it is possible to read out, decode and partially visualize device
