ODVA offers a single form for ordering subscriptions to Specifications, Conformance Test Software, and Vendor IDs. Submission of your order acknowledges that you understand and agree to the terms detailed below regarding each product.
The right to use the Specifications to design, manufacture, or sell products incorporating all or any part of the Specifications is subject to the terms and conditions of the Terms of Usage Agreement. The license for Specification subscriptions may be viewed here.
The specifications for CIP Networks™ are published as The CIP Networks Library, which currently comprises nine volumes. To view which volumes comprise the Specification you wish to purchase, please click here.
Specifications are obtained through a subscription, which entitles the Buyer to updates to the network Specifications for one (1) year. The Definitive Versions of the Final Specifications are in English and are distributed electronically.
If the Buyer wishes to obtain duplicate copies (e.g., two DeviceNet English language versions), a second full subscription must be purchased. Site licenses are available for all of ODVA’s specifications to allow Licensed Vendors to share the publication with multiple users who are employees and on-site contracted individuals performing typical employee functions on a contract basis. If access to these files is given to contractors, the Licensed Vendor must ensure that the contractors can fulfill the obligations of the Licensed Vendor’s Terms of Usage Agreement for the ODVA technology.
To purchase the CIP Safety Specification subscription, a vendor must hold either a DeviceNet Vendor ID or an EtherNet/IP Vendor ID.
Vendor ID Terms
In order to purchase a Vendor ID, the Buyer must have a current subscription to the specification for the applicable network.
The ODVA Conformance Test Software is obtained through a subscription, which entitles the Buyer to updates to the specific software for one (1) year. The current Composite Test (CT) version of the software is distributed via an emailed download link. The right to use the software to design, manufacture, or sell products incorporating all or any part of the Specifications is subject to the responsibilities outlined in the Terms of Usage Agreement. The software is intended for use by companies/developers interested in self-testing their product prior to having the test performed by ODVA’s Test Service Providers; therefore, the Buyer must have a current subscription to the specification of the network adaptation of the software the Buyer is purchasing. The software may be installed on one (1) computer; one (1) backup copy may also be made. The software is intended for use as a complement to the Buyer’s own testing. It does not guarantee product conformance to the relevant Specification.
Subscription Renewal Terms
Please note that prior to the expiration of your subscription, you will automatically receive an invoice from ODVA in order to renew the subscription. If you do not wish to continue your subscription, please notify ODVA by emailing us in advance of your renewal date that you wish to cancel. Please note that pursuant to the user responsibilities outlined in the Terms of Usage Agreement, cancellation of a subscription to the specifications may impact your rights to sell products incorporating ODVA technologies.
Fulfillment and Refund Policy
ODVA will fulfill all subscriptions via a download link emailed to the subscription holder upon receipt of payment. Vendor ID numbers will be emailed directly to the order contact.
Refunds are available on subscriptions to the specifications pursuant to section 4.2 of the ODVA Terms of Usage Agreement. To request a refund, write [email protected] no later than 45 days after receipt of the specifications. Refunds are not available on subscriptions to the conformance test software or on Vendor IDs.
