PROFIdrive Profile Tester

PROFIdrive/Drives , PROFINET


The PROFIdrive Profile Tester supports the development of PROFINET devices with PROFIdrive or ENCODER Profile application interfaces. It can be used as a means for preparation of the PROFIdrive certification and also as test tool to run self-programmed test scripts.

V5.0 is an improved and reworked V4.0 and adds isochronous operation (sign of life and DSC test).


With V5.1 the additional features Device Access, PROFIdrive on PROFIsafe and Alarm channel/Diagnostics (for both PROFIdrive & Encoder) can be tested and the Encoder Profile V4.2 tests can be performed.

With V5.2 the console application for test automation, SLP test and enhanced ENCODER profile V4.2 tests are added. . ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hardware requirements:
