NetStaX EIPScan – EtherNet/IP Scanner Simulator



Version 2.4.1

Pyramid’s NetStaX™ EtherNet/IP Scanner Simulator (EIPScan) is an extremely useful tool for testing and debugging EtherNet/IP™ products, performing end-of-line testing, field testing and demonstrating your EtherNet/IP products to end customers.  EIPScan also provides Adapter simulation capabilities by allowing Assembly instances to be registered in the tool that can be connected to by other scanners.

EIPScan is a very user friendly PC/Windows™ application that allows you to test EtherNet/IP messaging and connections on a standard PC or Laptop.  No additional software or hardware is required.

New Version 2.4.1 features and updates

  • New security software is now integrated that prevents the EIPScan unlock key from being invalidated by Windows Updates or hardware changes on the licensed PC or Laptop.
  • Built on Pyramid’s latest CT18 tested EtherNet/IP Scanner Stack
  • Improved stack and UI performance
  • A new EIPScan-SECURE option is available that enables CIP Security connections. The base EIPScan operates as before with standard connections and messaging and once the EIPScan-SECURE option is enabled, additional user interface options are enabled to allow secure connections.
  • Added support for Identity object v2. Catalog Number and Manufacture Date is now displayed with the device Identity information.
  • Class 3 Maximum request size is now configurable, allowing the use of Large Forward Open and request sizes up to 1516 bytes.
  • Originated Class 1 output (O->T) data buffer can now be edited when the connection is inactive (timed out or closed).
  • Other EIPScan updates based on user feedback (see the release notes provided with EIPScan).
