FieldComm Group is excited to announce the release of version 6.4.0 of the H1 Interoperability Test Kit (ITK) for testing FOUNDATION Fieldbus devices. The latest version of the test kit provides maintenance level improvements to system and hardware support. 
What's new?
  • Test System components were refactored for Visual Studio 2015.  
  • DD Test Cases and DDViewer now run with EDD Engine 7.0.5.   
  • Automated EDD Template Tests have been added to improve run-time of a campaign and deliver consistent results.  
  • Efficiencies in test case automation has reduced run-time.  
  • Bug Fixes 
In release 6.3.0, we introduced Standard Connection Points (SCP) test cases. Since that initial release, additional test cases have been added that require a firmware update to the Test Function Block. License holders with an active Product Service Program for their H1 ITK need to request an upgrade for their Test Function Block in order to fully execute SCP tests with their devices in development.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a required or optional update?
FieldComm Group requires developers to use the latest ITK to submit DD/CFF self-tests and all registrations must adhere to the latest test cases after 6 months from the date of release so immediate updates are recommended.
