hello,

I think the only one who can answer my question is Claes :)


I want to connect Proview to a Profinet device.
As I read in the Guide to IO Ssytem, i could use de Profinet stack from Softing.
I contacted them and explained that i would use it with Proview.

This was the answer I got:
we did a special porting of our profinet stack for SSAB – which is the owner of PROVIEW.
If you wants to use this solution you have to contact SSAB to discuss the licensing of their solution.

So my question is,
Does SSAB distribute this software stack to the proview users?
For what kind of devices is this stack suitable? Intel, Rasberry PI and what OS: debian / ubuntu


Kind regards,

Frans Sleddens.

Hi Frans,

We don't distribute the profinet stack with the public releases. The reason is that we didn't think we had the right to do that, but we will try to straighten this out with Softing. Unfortunately they are not very responsive, but I'll get back if we get any answers.

Softing is building the profinet archives for us and the one we currently use is for debian 6, although we will soon get one for debian 8.

Hi Claes,

Is there any news on this matter? Have you already received the debian 8 version from Softing?

I would need the profinet stack to show potential customers what can be done with Proview in combination with Profinet. I think at the moment this is the most powerful hardware interface. Powerlink is great as well (and open source!) but there's little hardware at the moment.

Is there a chance to get the stack for testing purposes?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

We have received a Debian 8 32-bit version of the Profinet stack that is now are running in production, and we also have a 64-bit version that we haven't tested yet.

Softing's idea is that we should buy licenses from Softing and Proview users should then buy licenses from us. This means that you won't get any support directly from Softing but have to turn to us if there are any problems or questions, and I can see a problem there as we don't have that kind of support organization.

We haven't decided yet how to handle this, but send me a mail with your name, company and address and we can discuss a test license further.

Good Morning Claes,
Is the Profinet stack you have tested,for intel compatible processors only or also for example raspberry?
I assume that the stack is a profinet master.

With what kind of profinet devices you are testing?

Please contact me about the price of a license.

Kind regards,
Frans Sleddens
