Newest version of SOPAS Engineering Tool. This download’s size is about 290MB. It includes the setup.exe installing the SOPAS Engineering Tool.
It does not include SDDs (SOPAS Device Descriptions).
SDDs can be downloaded after the first start of SOPAS ET.
Use the Device Catalog to download and install SDDs. If you do not have SDDs on any data medium they will be downloaded from Internet, thus an internet connection will be needed. Selective download of SDDs is possible.
- We recommend establishing a fixed wire connection to the fast Internet.
- After the conditions for use have been accepted and the download has been initiated, select the SAVE option in the displayed window.
- Double-click the saved Setup.exe file.
- Then select Execute and Install.
The engineering tool for all SICK sensors
As soon as it starts, SOPAS ET configuration software begins searching for connected SICK sensors and displays them. Detected sensors can be selectively integrated into the project. SOPAS ET automatically establishes a connection and pulls up suitable drivers. If none are available, they are loaded from the Internet or directly from the sensor. There is no need for extensive searches and installation of drivers. Sensors are presented clearly as tiles or lists. Double-clicking on a tile opens a window for configuring the sensor. Assistants and integrated workflows provide support. Additional tools such as device comparison, data recorders, terminals as well as sensor emulators round off the range of functions. The multi-device window facilitates the handling of projects which contain many devices, thereby completely replacing Version 2.38.3. This view can only be used for devices which were not developed using JavaFX. These are mostly devices which do not follow the new UI Guideline.
