In addition, FDI Package Test and Ethernet APL Conformance Tests are offered.  The test results are the pre-requisite for granting PI certificates.

Test enables Confidence

As a device manufacturer you can demonstrate the high quality of your product to your clients by means of a PROFINET and PROFIBUS certificate respect­tively! The market success of a product strongly depends on its proven qualitative characteristics. The full interoperability of a device equipped with a PROFINET and PROFIBUS interface can be reached most rapidly, when tests based on approved test spe­cifications become part of the quality management for the device development. An essential component of such a quality system is certification testing by an independent authorized PI test laboratory.
