Use of this software requires a Siemens card and the appropriate drivers to be installed on the PC. The software has been tested with CP5512, CP5611 and CP5412-A2. Operation with CP5613 cannot be guaranteed. PROFItester uses FDL services only: this means that a SIMATIC licence is not required.


This software has not been designed for use in a production setting, but only for testing and training purposes. No liability will be accepted regarding correct function. All risks are the responsibility of the user.
