The ASComm .NET PLC Driver Library by Automated Solutions, is a fully-managed .NET Framework library that delivers communications connectivity between .NET Framework applications. Run your application on Windows to read and write registers on a broad range of industrial devices (including Allen-Bradley by Rockwell Automation, Siemens S7, Modbus / TCP & GE SRTP) using industrial communications protocols.
All supported protocol drivers are implemented in the ASComm.NET component, providing a single, consistent API regardless of the underlying protocols or hardware devices. Development licenses for each driver can be licensed individually, so you only pay for the drivers that you are developing with.
Use Visual Basic, C#, C++, and ASP.NET to create HMI, SCADA, data logging, and IIoT applications targeting Win Forms, WPF, Web, console, service, and Linux.
Powerful pre-built example applications with VB and C# source code included in development package.
