With the NE100 API it is possible for you to import and export PROLIST valid XML files into your systems.

PROLIST International e.V. developed with the NAMUR recommendation 100 (NE100) a structured data format for an electronic exchange of process control device specifications.

The device specifications are exchanged in form of NE100 compliant XML files between plant designers and device suppliers in a defined workflow between systems (e.g. from CAx-system to product database).

To get ready, all systems involved must be able to process NE100 compliant XML files.

By integrating the NE100 API you enable your system to process these NE100 XML files. After implementation of the NE100 API you are able to create mappings to your internal structural elements.
