Safety over EtherCAT Conformance Test Tool (FSoE CTT) ET9402
The FSoE CTT enables in-house testing of Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE) slave devices with EtherCAT interface. The utilization of the ET9402 Tool during the development of Safety over EtherCAT devices helps to ensure the conformity and to prepare the device for the official, independent FSoE Conformance Test in an ETG accredited EtherCAT Test Center.
The ET9402 tool requires a standard PC with Windows OS; special hardware is not required. The EtherCAT frames for stimulation of the device under test are sent via the standard Ethernet port. The tool processes the FSoE test cases (XML files) sequentially.
Test results and remarks are shown in a logger window and can in turn be saved as XML files.
The tool is based on the EtherCAT Conformance Test Tool (ET9400) with extensions regarding to Safety over EtherCAT functionality. A valid subscription of the ET9400 is a prerequisite for the FSoE CTT.
The Test includes a complete test set for testing the conformance of FSoE slave devices. The test set is approved by TÜV. According to the Safety over EtherCAT Conformance Test Policy of the EtherCAT Technology Group (ETG) every manufacturer of EtherCAT devices with Safety over EtherCAT is obliged to prove the compatibility of Safety over EtherCAT implementation by means of the current version of the FSoE tests and the therein required FSoE Conformance Test Tools.
