Automated Solutions ASComm.NET is a fully-managed .NET component that delivers communications connectivity between .NET applications and a broad range of industrial devices using popular 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.
