PROFINET PA Trial Test Bundle



The PROFINET PA V4.01 TRIAL Test Bundle supports the development of PROFINET PA field devices. The bundle contains some test cases for PROFINET PA devices of version 4.01 for the Automated RT Tester.

Important note: The test cases contain all current changes to the PA profile that have been decided by the C3PG7 working group so far and will be included in the new profile version. Please refer to the corresponding TCS and TCIS documents.

This bundle is not for official device certification! It is just for trial and to provide feedback to the test case developers.

 This bundle contains:

·         Automated RT Tester,

·         Test Specification PN IO devices,

·         PN Specification,

·         5 PA Profile GSDML,

·         and GSDML specification.


For support or feedback, please contact: pn-ts-support(at)oth-aw(dot)de


Important hint for execution: Please run all scenarios from the ‘AddressingMapping’ group first. If these are passed by the device, execute scenario 1 from test case ‘ParameterAttributes’. After that you have to create the device specific data files from the generated template files. These files are necessary for all further test cases.

Le nostre tecnologie

PROFIBUS è un sistema di comunicazione digitale standardizzato ed aperto, utilizzabile in tutte le aree di applicazione, dal manifatturiero al processo.

PROFINET è l'innovativo standard aperto per l'Industrial Ethernet. E' in grado di soddisfare tutti i requisiti necessari per le applicazioni di automazione industriale.

IO-LINK è la prima tecnologia IO standardizzata a livello mondiale (IEC 61131-9) per comunicare con sensori ed attuatori sotto il livello di comunicazione del bus di campo. Può essere integrata con PROFIBUS e PROFINET.
