New ODVA initiative further ensures interoperability of CIP Networks products in multi-vendor installations
ODVA is committed to providing industry with vendor-independent assurance that network products implementing CIP comply with the specifications, rules and guidelines contained in The CIP Networks Library. Understanding that customer satisfaction with CIP Networks is directly linked to the ease of interoperability of these products in multi-vendor systems, ODVA achieves this assurance through its conformance testing practice and the shared commitment of its members to comply with the responsibilities mandated in CIP Networks Terms of Usage Agreements. These include (but are not limited to): obtaining Declarations of Conformity from ODVA, if applicable, for all CIP Network Products; following the most current edition of the specifications, rules and guidelines as published in The CIP Networks Library; and making a strong statement in the product documentation that is provided to customers that the products comply with the specifications.
ODVA, founded in 1995, is an international association comprised of members from the world's leading automation companies. Collectively, ODVA and its members support network technologies based on the Common Industrial Protocol (CIP). These currently include DeviceNet, EtherNet/IP, CompoNet, CIP Motion, CIP Safety and CIP Sync. ODVA manages the development of these open technologies, and assists manufacturers and users of CIP Networks through tools, training and marketing activities. In addition, ODVA offers conformance testing to help ensure that products built to its specifications operate in multi-vendor systems. ODVA also is active in other standards development organizations and industry consortia to drive the growth of open communication standards.
