This is an opportunity to work with the vendor community to evaluate the procedures for testing device interoperability in a trial virtual event. Participants will need to send a device to ODVA in Ann Arbor. ODVA staff and other members of the test team will connect to the device and conduct tests as per an updated version of the EtherNet/IP Interoperability Test Procedures (Pub 95). Although participants will receive feedback on the performance of their device, the focus of this event will be on the procedures and no official test report or DOC will be issued as an outcome.

An STC file and EDS will need to be submitted to ODVA prior to the event so that the test team can determine whether the device has sufficient functionality to participate in this event. Participants will need to be available for periodic Microsoft Teams calls with the testers and organizing team over the course of the week. The exact schedule for the event is to be determined but will be based around the normal working days of the test team in Europe (Central European Summer Time) and in Michigan, USA (Eastern Summer Time).

This event will be limited to 10 devices.

Register via the form below by Tuesday September 14, 2021.  All devices must be sent to ODVA by September 21, 2021.
