Project description


This is a ctypes based python wrapper for snap7. Snap7 is an open source, 32/64 bit, multi-platform Ethernet communication suite for interfacing natively with Siemens S7 PLCs.

Python-snap7 is tested with Python 3.6+, on Windows, Linux and OS X.

The full documentation is available on Read The Docs.
