This free SNAP PAC .NET HART Software Development Kit (SDK) helps you develop a .NET or Mono custom program to communicate with new HART® SNAP I/O modules.
These modules open up communication with smart devices, such as field-mounted process transmitters and analyzers, that use the Highway Addressable Remote Transducer (HART) protocol.
Choose the HART SNAP I/O modules you need:
We developed the SDK for those of you who are using HART SNAP I/O modules without a SNAP PAC controller. (If you're using a SNAP PAC controller and PAC Control strategy, you don't need the SDK.)
The SDK library supports Visual Studio 2005, 2008, and 2010, as well as Mono 3.2.7 or newer. All documentation is included in the SDK, and a new technical note gets you started.

If you write your own custom programs using the OptoMMP protocol, or if you use memory map addresses to communicate with SNAP PAC controllers and brains, this tech tip is for you.
We've just published updated versions of our free OptoMMP software development toolkits and added new addresses to the OptoMMP Protocol Guide, form 1465.
Feel free to download any or all of these:
C++ OptoMMP Software Development Kit for SNAP PAC—C++ SDK for Windows (includes ActiveX controls), Linux, and OS X. The SDK lets you use programming tools such as Visual Basic or C++. If you're using ActiveX, check out the ActiveX OptoMMP Technical Note.
.NET OptoMMP Software Development Kit for SNAP PAC—100% managed SDK for developers using .NET. Also see the .NET OptoMMP SDK Technical Note, which gets you started using the SDK.
OptoMMP Protocol Guide, form 1465—Your complete guide to the open OptoMMP protocol used by all SNAP PAC brains and controllers. Includes configuring I/O points and features, using event reactions and PID loops, the open protocol itself (for you die-hard pure-protocol fans) and the complete memory map. We've added new memmap addresses for HART SNAP I/O modules and flexible custom areas, where you can create and read or write to a set of non-contiguous addresses for custom streaming or block reads and writes.
