EtherNet/IP Scanner Simulator Tool

EIPScan is a Microsoft Windows-based software application that simulates an EtherNet/IP Scanner. EIPScan is an extremely useful tool for testing and debugging EtherNet/IP products during development, for end of line testing and field testing as well as for demonstration of products shipping to end customers.


EIPScan 2.x is a completely new Windows .NET application, but still based (like version 1.x) on the proven EtherNet/IP Scanner Developers' Kit (ESDK). The graphical user interface is based on Microsoft WPF, the user can define and store its own workspaces.
If the user had previously activated their copy of EIPScan 1.x the activation status will be retained for EIPScan 2.x.
