IRT-Tester (SPIRTA),
Security Level 1 Tester,
Test Specification PN devices,
PN Specification,
all PN relevant Guidelines,
Test cases for all RT-/IRT-/Security Level 1- tests,

The goal of this test system is to have all the necessary documents and test systems for RT and IRT and Security Level 1 (NetLoad) combined in one bundle with all the electronic test cases to be performed during a certification test.




Version 2023-08-25 (V2.44.1)

This Test Bundle V2.44.1 Release shall be used for certification test of a device and/or a controller of Conformance Classes A and B and a device of Conformance Class C. Device certification is fully based on Embedded Test System (ETS).

It has also integrated latest state of PA Profile 4 and APL for devices certification.

Conformance Class D is in preparation. Additionally to the official test bundle, a separate bundle with the pilot version for PROFINET with TSN and all other latest developements is available.
