Standard Modules of Axon Test


With Axon Test, you can easily create connections for both master devices and slaves. You also have the option to create signal descriptions which can be tested. In the case of master protocols, creating signals isn’t mandatory for simulating IEDs but it can help identify the signals that need to be checked.

Our user-friendly interface displays masters/slaves protocols in a tree view on the left side of the screen. Here, you can access all the necessary features for configuring each IED that you’ve added. You can easily configure connection parameters and input/output signals, including their respective addressing.

Telecontrol Protocols Simulator - Configuration


With Axon Test, you can execute various command types for master protocols. If these commands have been previously configured in Digital/Analog Output, they will automatically appear in the Output Commands tab of the Commands window, allowing them to be executed easily. If the commands haven’t been configured yet, you’ll need to select the Advanced Command window, where you can execute any command you need.

Telecontrol Protocols Simulator - Commands


The trace module is a powerful tool that allows you to monitor the exchange of frame information between devices. With this tool, you can easily diagnose communication status issues in a simple and straightforward way. The communication frames are decomposed and analyzed to provide you with valuable insights, and you can use filters to improve the readability of the information.

Telecontrol Protocols Simulator - Trace


The viewer module offers a range of features to help you analyze and manage your signals data. With this module, you can display your configured signals data for the slave protocol, including parameters such as time stamp, name, description, and quality. You can also view received signals data from the master device. Additionally, the module includes signal filters that allow you to select only the signals that are of interest to you.

The viewer module also offers a color-coded display for digital signals, making it easier to detect signals based on their value. Furthermore, you can use the module to force a change in the value and quality properties of a signal from a slave, making it an effective tool for simulation purposes.

  • Can I use my Axon Test License in several Laptops, PC´s?

Axon Test can be licensed with a hardware license Key (Dongle Key), so, you can use your Axon Test License in several computers.

  • How can I use Axon Test for power automation systems testing?

To test communications without IEDs, gateway or SCADA. This is a faster way to test without the engineer needing to have all the necessary devices connected and configured. Therefore, the test process is done in advanced and then, when the system is completed, the engineer only has to connect, check interoperability and do the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) or Site Acceptance test (SAT).

  • Have I to buy the license with all protocols or I can choose the protocols for licensing?

You can simulate a behaviours of any device based on the next protocols:

    • DNP3 (Client/Master or Server/Slave)(TCP/Serial)
    • IEC 60870-5-101 (Master or Server)(Serial/Over TCP)
    • IEC 60870-5-104 (Client or Server)(TCP)
    • Modicon Modbus (Client/Master or Server/Slave) (TCP/Serial)
    • OPC (Client or Server)(TCP)

You can add to your license just the necessary protocols and Modbus is always included.

  • What can I do with Axon Test License?

Axon test allows engineers to check, diagnose and resolve issues in a communication system in a faster way. For example, check whether the device is sending the correct information, which let us know where the problem is in the device, gateway, network or SCADA configuration
