DeviceNet Master Simulator

The Master Simulator is an easy to use tool to test the DeviceNet Adapter/Slave functionality of any fieldbus device. 


The automatic Slave identification functionality permits communication to almost any DeviceNet slave device even if the normally required EDS file is not available.  Any DeviceNet Slave can be set into operation and afterwards clear and user friendly dialog boxes are used to exchange cyclic I/O data or acyclic explicit messages between the DeviceNet Slave and the Simulator.

The Master Simulator consist of a Windows based Software tool and a DeviceNet interface circuitry (Dongle). The Dongle is plugged into the USB port of the PC and provides on the other side a 9-pin D-Sub connector as the DeviceNet Interface. The Dongle is powered from USB port.

To connect a DeviceNet Slave, a DeviceNet cable and additionally the 24 Volt DeviceNet power supply is required. These components are recommended accessories and are not included in the scope of supply.
