This conformance test tool for CIP Safety on Sercos devices can be applied for originator and target implementations, no matter whether the safety function is part of a Sercos master or slave device. The test tool can be used to automatically test the full CIP Safety on Sercos protocol of a device to prove compliance with the CIP Safety specification. The identical test software can also be used to test implementations of CIP Safety on EtherNet/IP and DeviceNet.
Vendors seeking to perform own tests and prepare for the CIP Safety conformance test can purchase the Conformance Test Tool for CIP Safety. This test tool is identical to the official conformance test system used by ODVA’s Test Service Providers (TSP) to determine compliance with The CIP Safety Specification.
The CIP Safety on Sercos conformance tests are currently available at ODVA’s Test Service Provider (TSP) in Ann Arbor, North America. First CIP Safety on Sercos devices have already been successfully certified.
