Professional add-on modules

These modules range from tool enhancements for functional safety to advanced function block libraries. All Professional Add-on modules are purchased on an annual subscription basis, so you only pay for the advanced functionality that you need. You can try these features and see how they can enhance your development process with the free 30-day trial.
