PROFINET GSD Checker

PROFINET

Description:

Checking the functionality of a PROFINET device without having detailed knowledge about the content of the description file is often important for the user. This is what the GSD Checker does.

The GSD Checker is able to show the content of GSD files for PROFINET in an easy to understand table view. It also contains a function to check the accuracy of GSD files which helps to build a valid description file.
A built-in XML editor allows to make corrections without having to leave the tool. Additionally, an external XML editor may be called just by pressing a button.
Built-in sample files are a good starting point for editing own GSD files.

The tool is provided free of charge by PROFIBUS Nutzerorganisation e.V. (Germany) to all members of PROFIBUS & PROFINET International (PI).

 

Version 2.35 (1) fully supports GSDML V2.35.

It comes with pre-built binaries for the additional XML parsers Apache Xerces-C++ V3.2.1 and libxml2 V2.9.8.

 

After unpacking the ZIP file, please use the setup.exe program for installation (instead of double-cklicking the *.msi file).
