I'm working on implimenting PROFInet, and would like to ask if there is any PROFInet-capbable PC-based "controller" SW out there.
I've been searching around on Google, and haven't found anything that will run on a "stock" PC and do basic PLC type functionality w/ PROFInet I/O. Something running under Linux would be ideal, but I'd settle for Win2K or WinNT.
It's for exercising the prototype devices and doing demos, so performance isn't critical.
I'm sure that Siemens would prefer I buy a real PLC, but I'd rather use one of the PCs that's sitting around...
