Encoder Profile - Test Specification
PROFINET , PROFIBUS , PROFIdrive/Drives
The ENCODER Profile is a PROFIBUS and PROFINET profile for Motion Control sensor devices, to have a standardized behaviour and interface (access technique to Encoder data), independent from a manufacturer.
Depending on encoder types the minimum supported functionality of PROFIBUS or PROFINET is mentioned as well as the usage of that functionality.
That minimum functionality and the defined usage are to be checked at a profile test. Also the supported optional functionality according to the profile is to be tested.
Knowledge, test equipment and expertise for ENCODER profile devices are the same than for PROFIdrive devices, therefore the certification test for the ENCODER profile can be performed by any PROFIdrive certified test lab.
The PROFIdrive PROFINET Profile Tester (see Software and Tools) is the tool to carry out the test.
