ET9402 | Safety over EtherCAT Conformance Test Tool
The FSoE Conformance Test Tool (FSoE CTT) enables in-house testing of Safety over EtherCAT (FSoE) slave devices with EtherCAT interface. The utilisation 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 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 the Safety over EtherCAT implementation by means of the current version of the FSoE tests and the required FSoE Conformance Test Tools.
