The zigbee alliance conducts certification tests to ensure zigbee solutions offer reliable and robust wireless networking. Every product based on a standard is certified to be interoperable regardless of manufacturer, allowing consumers to purchase and install with confidence. The following test and development products are specifically designed to assist product manufacturers develop products and then prepare for certification.
Smart Energy Test Harness is a complete reference application emulating all types of devices. The harness automates the execution of the complete certification suite for the zigbee Smart Energy Standard making it easy for NTS customers to achieve certification.
Smart Energy Test Tool – NTS SETest 1.1 was the first test harness for the zigbee Smart Energy 1.1 standard. It is a complete reference test tool emulating all of the various types of zigbee Smart Energy devices, along with automating the certification test suite for zigbee Smart Energy 1.1. SETest 1.1 brings a number of improvements over its predecessor, including the ability for clients to add their own test scripts, new hardware with increased memory, OTA (Over The Air), Key Establishment (KE) security, etc. NTS’s SETest was the first certified test tool for the zigbee Smart Energy standard, and is at the forefront of the latest updates to the zigbee Smart Energy test specification.
Home Automation Test Tool – NTS HATest test harness has been designed by NTS as a complete reference test tool emulating all of the various types of zigbee Home Automation devices, along with the automation of the certification test suite for the zigbee Home Automation standard. NTS’s HATest tool includes reference hardware emulating zigbee Home Automation devices, along with an application which facilitates execution of the certification suite. The harness automates the execution of the certification suite for zigbee Home Automation making it easy for NTS customers to achieve zigbee certification.
RF4CE Automation Test Tool – The NTS RF4CETest test harness is a complete reference test tool for the zigbee RF4CE specification, emulating the various types of zigbee RF4CE devices. NTS test tool has been designed to allow manufacturers and developers to pre-test their devices and increase the likelihood they will earn zigbee Certified product status the first time. The tool includes reference hardware emulating zigbee RF4CE devices and an application that allows for the automation of the test specification.
TÜV Rheinland Test Tool enables a laptop to become a back-office test lab device. The device can also be used as a field installation tool to perform zigbee profile testing and debugging interoperability issues for Smart Energy (SE), Building Automation (BA), Home Automation (HA) and Light Link (ZLL). It also includes the complete reference test tool for the zigbee RF4CE specification.
Unique in the industry, the TÜV Rheinland Test Harness Program provides manufacturers or system integrators with a clear roadmap for certification and a fixed budget cost upfront. It is the same test harness system used by TÜV Rheinland engineers for certification testing and is now available to our clients.
Test Harness is a fully-automated tool to perform zigbee alliance Home Automation tests without the need of manual verifications. Test Harness is a cost effective solution that allows Products Developers to check their implementations, before starting the official certification process. It can emulate several types of zigbee Home Automation devices and, interacting with real products, it produces detailed test reports.
Test Harness provides all the mandatory ZGD (zigbee Gateway Device) Procedures and implements the zigbee Home Automation 1.2 Standard. Other Profiles will be added following the zigbee alliance releases. User Specified Devices and Test Plans can also be defined in Test Harness following Profiles and Cluster specifications and enabling the execution of single tests or fully automated test plans outside the official certification program. Please, check the Test Harness web site https://www.testharness.it also for commercial details.
