The PROFINET Master Simulator is an easy to use software for data exchange with PROFINET Slaves of many suppliers. Software only. There are two versions are available, one basic version for PROFINET and a Plus version that supports acyclic data, PROFIsafe, and logging of I/O data.

The PROFINET Master Simulator can exchange data with many PROFINET Slaves even without a PROFINET Master. Furthermore, the PROFINET Master Simulator also processes GSD-files as well as the input of special configurations to start the data exchange with PROFINET Slaves.

Display of data

Identification, renaming, and address the assignment of PROFINET Slaves is also possible. Furthermore, the data, in particular, the diagnostic function can be displayed as binary, hexadecimal, and now also as ASCII code. Output data can be transmitted consistently. In type mode, it is possible to set output as long as the mouse button is pressed.

In addition, it also supports PROFIsafe modules, as well as a log function of the I/O data and allows operations in the acyclic mode (Record Data CR). However as the PROFINET Master Simulator is a monitoring and commissioning tool for PROFINET Slaves, it is not designed to control automation processes.
