Is there a tool on the market to test the profibus card. (It's a profibus sst card for an AB SLC.) We want to send some tekst files and see
if they are interpret correctly.
In our placing the card acts like a slave.
Kind Regards

To test the adaptor, you need a Profibus Master. It is probably best to use the same master that you envision the SLC being polled by in its
final installation. Various SST Profibus masters have the advantage of coming with a full suite of software including the excellent DP Monitor,
which allows you to view inputs and set outputs manually while also availing you of a wealth of diagnostics.
