COVID-19 protocols will be implemented in accordance with the recommendations of local and federal governments in the location of the event.

Test your EtherNet/IP product’s interoperability with a number of other product and infrastructure vendors, and receive feedback on device performance and possible interoperability problems — before they are discovered in the field.

ODVA staff and other members of the test team will connect to the device and conduct tests as per the EtherNet/IP Interoperability Test Procedures (Pub 95). The workshop and materials will be provided in English. Local language assistance will be provided on a volunteer basis by participating attendees. Non-ODVA Members are welcome.

Devices are first tested against a predefined test configuration and test procedure. The formal test procedure comprises testing products for compliance to the following recommendations:

You may choose to have your product take part in the Interoperability Advisory Test. Upon successfully completing the Interoperability Advisory Test at the PlugFest, a product’s Declaration of Conformity is eligible to be revised to indicate the product has passed the advisory test for EtherNet/IP interoperability. Devices must pass the Interoperability Advisory Test and the ODVA conformance test at the same product revision level in order to be eligible. Devices that do not have a valid Declaration of Conformance may use the Interoperability Advisory Test results if the same device revision passes the ODVA Conformance Test at a TSP within 6 months following the PlugFest. The EtherNet/IP Interoperability Advisory Test will consist of testing products for compliance to the following recommendations: EtherNet/IP Interoperability Advisory testing comprises two parts:

  • Device interoperability testing, in which devices are tested against a predefined test configuration and test procedure (see the Document Library for EtherNet/IP Interoperability Test Procedures (Pub 95), including:
    • EDS verification — all devices
    • Network interoperability — all devices
    • Common interoperability — all devices
    • I/O adapter interoperability — I/O adapter devices
    • Explicit message client interoperability — explicit message client devices
    • I/O scanner interoperability — I/O scanner devices
  • System interoperability testing, in which devices are tested in a multi-vendor system configuration and test procedure.

Devices are also tested for stated performance levels of:

  • Fastest cyclic production rate (RPI) supported by the device
  • Jitter
  • Background traffic effects on cyclic traffic
