We consider the problem of supervisory control for a class of rectangular automata and more specifically for compact rectangular automata with uniform rectangular activity, i.e. initialised. The supervisory controller is state feedback and disables discrete-event transitions in order to solve the non-blocking forbidden state problem. The non-blocking problem is defined under both strong and weak conditions. For the latter maximally permissive solutions that are computable on a finite quotient space characterised by language equivalence are derived.
