Software & drivers for interfaces card IF-XX
Here you can find the drivers and other software for your product:
USB driver for IF-U1 / IF-U2 / IF-E1b / IF-E2 / IF-PB1
For Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, Linux and MacOS X
The driver is a combined driver. It means, it can work as a true USB driver and it creates a COM port for every USB port of an interface card that is installed, which then can be accessed as a RS232 interface. This virtual COM port (VCP) is activated by default after the installation! It can to be deactivated in the driver setup dialogue (Windows device manager), if only the USB functionality is required.
Older driver versions, for example for Windows XP, can be found on the manufacturer's website www.ftdichip.com

Profibus example project for STEP7
Here you can find an example project for Siemens STEP 7 software (EN version), with english documentation included, which shall explain step by step how to implement a power supply device with Profibus interface IF-PB1 into a configuration. This guide, as included in the ZIP file, can also help users with other Profibus Master software, though the Siemens project may not be loadable.
Requires: Siemens STEP 7 Version 5.4 oder newer

IP-Config for use with devices with Ethernet interface card IF-E1B
This tool is used to adjust network parameters (IP, subnet mask, gateway) of a device where these parameters can't be set on the device itself. This pre-configuration is done via the additional USB port of the Ethernet card. After the setup, the device can be integrated into a network and is instantly accessible.
The tool is based on Labview and requires a runtime engine. In case the required runtime engine is already installed on your PC, by a different software from us, then please download the much smaller version without runtime, delete everything in the installation folder and unpack the ZIP file to there.
IP-Config (without LabView runtime, 0.3MB)
IP-Config (with LabView runtime, 114MB)g
These LabView VIs are used to control devices that are equipped with on the supported EA interface cards (see below) and to implement them into custom applications. Also included are a user guide and some sample VIs. Requires at least LabView 7.
