SOPAS Engineering Tool
Copy shortlink
  • Newest SOPAS Engineering Tool version. This download is approximately 290 MB in size and contains the Setup.exe for installing SOPAS ET.

    It does not contain any SDDs (SOPAS Device Drivers).

    SDDs can be downloaded once SOPAS ET has been started up for the first time.

    Use the device catalog for this purpose. If the SDDs are not available on a data card, they are loaded from the Internet. This requires an Internet connection. SDDs can be downloaded selectively.

    Please note:

    • 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.
