Hey Freakers!


   I am doing some preliminary research on upgrading an old product to communicate on ProfiNET.  This is in its early stages and while I have the controller IC's on order I need to find a PLC that supports the ProfiNET protocol to test with.  


For those wondering, ProfiNET is a Siemens communications protocol, which originally was ProfiBUS.  ProfiNET is Ethernet based, while ProfiBUS is RS-485 based.


So, I thought I would see if anyone here might have a PLC, or anything that supports ProfiNET as a host.


If you do have something, PM me.  Hopefully we can make a deal.


Thanks all.
