Performance testing service for EtherNet/IP products
ODVA announced at the SPS/IPC/Drives event in Nuremberg that it will offer testing services for measuring performance attributes of EtherNet/IP products. This addition to ODVA’s portfolio of testing services for the family of CIP Networks represents the next step in ODVA’s activities to aid industry in the deployment of EtherNet/IP for real-time control applications on networks utilising standard, unmodified Ethernet and Internet standards.
“The testing service simulates a variety of real world scenarios representative of network traffic in real-time control applications using EtherNet/IP,” states Jonathan Parrott, a network engineer at ODVA, and a key member of the project’s development team. “A cost-effective service is now available that benefits both users and vendors by providing a profile of the performance of a given EtherNet/IP product under demanding network traffic conditions over time.”
The service is an outgrowth of ODVA’s broad-based activities to promote adoption of EtherNet/IP in the widest possible range of manufacturing applications – control, safety, synchronisation and motion, configuration, diagnostics, information and asset management. To that end, ODVA has engaged in a collaborative process with EtherNet/IP vendors, users and IT metrology scientists to identify aspects of network performance that have the most impact on real-time control applications and develop the test methodologies on which the testing service will be based.
