User Reviews

  • Absolutely fantastic! Written all kinds of stuff using this under Mono for Linux. Works great for taking data from TCP or serial devices and gateway'ing it into CLX processors. Example applications I have implemented include from a Keyence thickness gauge Serial port to Ethernet via Moxa DE-311 to Xubuntu on a VM running AdvancedHMI to send the data to a CLX over Ethernet/IP and local Red Lion PAX displays over Modbus. Also used it to take data from an Omega iServer Humidity sensor over TCP to a CLX processor. For any Automation Engineer that's also a .Net programmer this is a dream come true. THANKS A BUNCH!!!!

  • nice

  • I developed a watchdog to monitor a coating machine PLC status when not under operation and determine the appropriate time to close its dampers to avoid cross contamination.. it performed awesome, simple, very robust, reliable..... thanks for such flexibility to create costume PLC interface for free..... no need to use FT anymore... thanks!!

  • Fantastic! Great job!

  • Five star , just for the IDEA of a free HMI. the top is to find the CODESYS v3 connection. thanks. mate
