ProfiScript – PROFIBUS Certification Tool
Price: Contact Us

ProfiScript is a low cost professional PROFIBUS pre-certification tool that can test and verify the complete protocol functionality of DP, DP-V1 and PA devices.

ProfiScript – PROFIBUS Certification Tool

It has enormous flexibility and is very easy to use. At this moment it is the only tool available, which can power-up/down devices by an external intelligent power switch and has the capability of remote testing over the Internet. An implemented syntax interpreter can also test the GSD file.

Application areas

  • Product certification (Real Testlab Tool).
  • Pre-conformance testing.
  • Product development.
  • Test-system for production verification.

This is the tool that will save you time and money during your PROFIBUS development and pre-certification phase, because we are also using this tool in our testlab!
